Our Mission

To identify, develop and implement ecologically sustainable and scientifically defensible leading edge forestry practices required to maintain and enhance an economically viable supply of quality fibre to Tembec mills, and to the communities those mills support, over the long term.

Our Mandate

This target is to be achieved in the context of ecological sustainability, reduced operational costs,
improved fibre utilization and enhanced future fibre quality.

Corporate Level

The corporate level will establish the goals and objectives of the Partnership in the context of the missions and mandates of its primary partners.

Landscape Level

At the landscape level, forest management planning and land use policies address large-scale issues.

Stand Level

The use of proven silvicultural tools at the stand level, implemented at an appropriate scale across the landscape, provides the basis for meeting corporate level wood supply objectives.
