All Canadians have a stake in the future of our country's forests. After all, forests cover nearly half of the Canadian landscape and are a dominant feature of our economy, culture, traditions and history. Increasing public interest in forest practices, global demand for wood, interest in non-timber benefits, forest certification, market pressures, biodiversity conservation and climate change are all impacting on the long-term management and use of our forests. This year's report looks at some of these challenges and issues and how they will likely change the forest landscape in the future.
