The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) has partnered with the U.S.-based Pulp and Paperworkers’ Resource Council on a new video series that features pulp and paper workers speaking to the responsible forest practices used by the industry.

In the U.S., two or more trees are planted for every tree that is used.

Canada measures its harvest and regeneration differently. According to Natural Resources Canada’s 2019 State of Canada’s Forests Report, an estimated 756,000 hectares of forest were harvested in 2017, or about 0.2 per cent of Canada’s total 347 million hectares.

That same year, 572 million seedlings were planted on 396,000 hectares of Crown and private forest lands. Artificial regeneration only accounts for about 56 per cent of the area harvest over the past 20 years – the rest is naturally regenerated.
