The State of Canada’s Forests annual report for 2011 features an insightful review of the past year for Canada's forests and forest sector; statistical profiles for Canada and the provinces and territories; and, a sample of the indicators for sustainable forest management, along with the most recent information on how Canada’s forests are doing in each area.

This year, two feature articles are available, complementing the printed report:

  • Squeezing more value from trees – reports on the extensive efforts underway at every level of the forest sector value chain to expand and optimize the market value of Canada’s wood fibre resource. The well-integrated, innovation-driven transformation strategy guiding this revival is focused on two key objectives: developing higher-end products and services, and improving production efficiencies.

  • Working to sustain Canada’s forests into the future – presents an overview of different initiatives that are underway to ensure that Canadian forests are environmentally sustainable in the long term, and that they continue to provide the many benefits that Canadians currently enjoy. This is especially important given the changes that have already begun to affect Canada’s forests. The article also describes how the natural attributes of those forests are contributing to their long-term capacity to adapt.
