A 1989 Forestry Mission to Scandinavia comprised of representatives from Forestry Canada, the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, and the Northern Interior lumber Sector of the Council of Forest Industries of British Columbia had two purposes.

The first purpose was to examine Scandinavian developments in the following areas:
- Forest management programs;
- Land use and environment issues; and
- Long-term strategic plans and visions of forests of the future.

The second purpose was to make recommendations for British Columbia-based on the Scandinavian experience.

This report reviews the history of Scandinavian forestry, describes major Scandinavian forestry institutions, details the regulatory framework within which Scandinavian forestry operates, and describes the Scandinavian silvicultural régime.
