Today, countries around the world are acknowledging International Day of Forests. By meeting the environmental, social and economic needs of current and future generations, British Columbia (B.C.), Canada, is recognized as a global leader in sustainable forest management. About 95% of B.C.’s forests are publicly owned and less than 1% of the forested land is harvested each year—land that is promptly reforested with native species. Sustainable resource management ensures that our forests continue to be a source of jobs and green building products now and in the future.
