Forest Renewal Program Regulations

Key Information
Description: 
The Forest Management Act provides authority for the management and harvest of public land forests on PEI. All public land forest products are offered for sale by public tender and the province does not allocate long term timber rights for public lands. Private woodlot owners are responsible for their own harvest and management decisions. As required by the Forest Renewal Program Regulations, all commercial softwood harvested on public and private lands on PEI is subject to a Forest Management Checkoff Fee. This money is reinvested into forest management programs for public lands and participating private lands.
Goal/Aim: 
Regulate timber and timber products.
