Forest Health


Forest Health, is a key component in Forest Stewardship.  The Forest Health Program, is responsible for the detection and quantification of forest health problems, and, where necessary, the prescription and implementation of protective or suppressive best management practices to  prevent insect, disease and mammal damage to reforested areas and old growth stands. The forest health program also evaluates the impacts of forest health damaging agents on forest resource values to inform the timber supply review process and other forest management activities.
