Satnam Manhas, Ecotrust Canada’s Chief Forester, is working in the woods this week with FSC® Canada’s Orrin Quinn.

They are certifying small woodlots in the Bulkley-Nechako Valley, aimed at creating a consistent Forest Stewardship Certified® wood fiber supply to CanFor’s regional pulp and paper mill. Enabling more small producers to certify their tenures helps to improve forest management in the region and reduces the distance logs travel on their journey to becoming wood products.
