Find Forestry expertise in Canada

Forestry, together with agriculture and fisheries, contributes 2% to Canada’s GDP (2008). Around 34% of the country is forested and the size of the country has not changed much since 1990 (2007). The country’s 397.3 million hectares of forest and wooded land represent 10% of the world’s forests, making Canada the world’s largest exporter of forest products. The United States is the largest buyer of Canadian forest products, purchasing 70% of them in 2009. Legislation protects 8% of Canada’s forests, and 40% of forests are subject to varying degrees of protection. As a result, only 1% of Canada’s forests are felled annually and 142 million hectares were certified as sustainably managed by the end of 2009. The country’s forests are managed through the departments of Natural Resources Canada.
