Provincial management inventories across Canada use similar approaches and have many common elements, but each has unique features resulting from the nature of the forest, requirements, historical developments, the personnel involved, and budgetary considerations. This report details, for each province, the procedures used, organizational structure, and schedule followed in the production of inventory maps. In addition a summary of the volume sampling component is given. A description of stand attributes and examples of the forest inventory map and legend for each province are provided.
