Regional companies share 2018-19 forestry plans at joint open houses

This spring, forest companies ANC Timber (Alberta Newsprint Company), Millar Western Forest Products Ltd., West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. (Blue Ridge Lumber and Alberta Plywood), and Weyerhaeuser Company – Pembina will be holding a series of joint open houses, to share forestry operating plans for the year ahead.  Taking place in late April and early May in the communities of Edson, Whitecourt, Swan Hills, Fort Assiniboine and Fox Creek, these events provide the public with the opportunity to review each company’s planned activities in road development, harvesting, hauling, reforestation and herbicide treatment for the 2018-19 forestry year.  Once stakeholder and aboriginal input is gathered, the companies will finalize their annual operating plans and submit them to the Alberta government, for final approval.
