Reports and Policies


Our company forest resources will be managed for long-term sustainability and natural biodiversity while providing an increasing harvest volume and conserving the social and cultural values of the community. The company is committed to implementing its sustainable forest management mission, vision, and guiding principles.

Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) Initiatives Include:

  • Managing the forest to maintain, enhance and develop the appropriate range of species naturally found on site
  • Using a range of harvest treatments based on on-site specific characteristics to create a more diverse and mixed forest in Nova Scotia
  • High Conservation Value Forest (HCVF) management
  • Public participation and broad-based input from local communities

Port Hawkesbury Paper manages for many values besides timber including old forests, wildlife corridors and habitats, special management zones, endangered species, unique ecosystems, recreation, heritage and culture, and domestic watersheds.
