Of Canada's 402 million hectares of forestland, more than three quarters are provincially owned. Provincial forest policies are thus crucial for encouraging sustainable management of the nation's forests as well as for promoting success in Canada's wood-product manufacturing sector. Forest tenures, which allow private companies to manage public forest resources, are the key policy tool that provinces use to balance the requirements of sustainable management with the economic concerns of the forest industry. Policies for Sustainably Managing Canada's Forests provides forest managers, policy-makers, scholars, and students with the information and concepts to critically examine Canada's complex forest tenure systems. The authors, all experts on forest tenure, examine tenure arrangements, stumpage fees and other forest practices to assess how well different provincial schemes achieve the goals of sustainable forest management. They identify essential policy attributes that could be used to guide tenure reform, consider potential barriers that could prevent meaningful change, and offer practical means of overcoming these obstacles. By providing an up-to-date comparative examination of contemporary provincial forestry policies, this volume addresses a pressing need for information about the strengths and weaknesses of various forest tenure policies. It will be an indispensable tool for shaping future sustainable forest management. Martin K.
