Species

Sustainably harvested from healthy forest ecosystems.

Alberta’s vast forests provide approximately 30 million cubic meters of wood each year. Less than 1% of our total forested landbase is harvested annually and all harvested areas must be replanted using effective reforestation practices.  Softwood species, including white and black spruce, lodgepole and jack pine and balsam fir, comprise almost 2/3 of the harvested volume. The remaining volume is composed of hardwood species, including trembling aspen, balsam poplar and white birch.
