Preferred Forest Management Scenario
The Preferred Forest Management Scenario (PFMS) develops a harvesting plan that is a balance of the environmental, economic, and social values of the forest. Computer models are used to identify a roadmap of what to harvest and when. This scenario includes details of how much timber volume to harvest of each tree species across the Forest Management Agreement area, and at what times during the next 200 years. Companies are required to plan over this 200 year timeline to ensure sustainablity.
The PFMS is expected to be available in 2020. It will be shared publically at this time for input prior to government acceptance.
