Forest management is much more than harvesting and growing trees. It involves the management of all resources within the forest through an integrated planning approach. The forest is a network of interlocking resource values including fisheries, wildlife, water quality, recreation, adventure tourism, wilderness, and timber. Corner Brook Pulp and Paper ensures this mosaic of resource values is managed on a sustainable basis to provide environmental, economic, and social benefits for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador.
It is essential that our forests remain healthy and diverse, and that all forest uses are respected. In meeting this goal, Corner Brook Pulp and Paper’s forest management planning process involves public input and participation to ensure operating plans reflect the interests of all forest users. If we are to sustain values such as timber, water quality, and recreational opportunities, the forest must be managed today, with tomorrow in mind.
