Island Timberlands often receives the question "are we required to reforest?" (or plant seedlings). As a Private Managed Forest Land owner, we are required to demonstrate an area is growing healthy trees in a reasonably even dispersed manner with five years following forest harvest. This is a legislated requirement with the Private Managed Forest Land Council Regulation. On average, Island Timberlands ensures its harvested areas met this standard within one year of harvest. For areas planned for harvest in 2012, Island Timberlands intends to reforest these areas and manage them as forest land.
