Tembec’s facilities in Huntsville and Témiscaming have wood supply coming from the Nipissing and French-Severn forests. Those forests are also an important source of supply for log products going to other non Tembec mills in the region.
Tembec is a member of the Nipissing Forest Resources Management Inc.(NFRM Inc.) and Westwind Forest Stewardship Inc. (WFSI) co-ops which manage the Nipissing Forest and French-Severn Forest respectively. NFRM Inc. and WFSI lead forestry planning and silviculture on their respective sustainable forest license areas. Each group is responsible for developing the 10 year Forest Management Plan (FMP) which includes a detailed description and mapping of logging and renewal operations and the development of road access planned for a five-year period. It also prepares the Annual Work Schedule (AWS) which identifies the location of operations scheduled for implementation during the year. The AWS includes information on the areas scheduled for harvest, road construction/maintenance, renewal, tending and protection operations.
Tembec manages its own logging operations on both forests ensuring that they are conducted in a manner which ensures the safety of its employees and the public while protecting the environment.
The French-Severn forest has been certified under the Great Lakes St-Lawrence standard of the Forest Stewardship Council ® (FSC®) since 2002. The Nipissing Forest has been certified to the same standard since 2003.
