The forest resource in Atlantic Canada provides jobs and income for many residents. Sustainable management of this resource will ensure these benefits continue. This paper briefly describes Atlantic Canada's forest resource in terms of productive forest land, inventory of wood volume, age class of trees, and land ownership. Wood production is reviewed by comparing recent annual harvest volumes to annual allowable cuts (AAC). Issues that may have an impact on future wood production are also discussed.
