Forest management plans prepared by industry are a requirement of Forest Management Agreements (FMA) negotiated between the Government of Alberta and forest companies. Forest management plans provide direction for sustainable management of forest resources.

Usage Considerations

Forest management plans (FMPs) are a requirement of all forest management agreements negotiated between the Government of Alberta and forest companies. The Government of Alberta appraises and approves FMPs based on the Alberta Forest Management Planning Standard. FMPs focus on how activities (i.e., establishing, growing and harvesting timber) of FMA holders and other tenure holders will be managed in order to reduce negative impacts on other resource users and resource values. This is accomplished by managing the forest management activities to create a desirable future forest. FMPs also provide direction to forest operations and include specific areas identified for reforestation and harvesting activities.
