1992 MOF Windthrow Census by Region
  • A provincial census of wind damage in 1992 indicated that the amount of timber damaged by wind was similar to that damaged by fire or by insects (4–5% of AAC in each case).
  • Like fire and insect damage, wind damage is episodic and the quantity will vary from year to year.
