Domtar has submitted a brief to the Task Force on Public Forest Management in Quebec. The document attests to the company’s support of efforts to increase public confidence in the management of public lands in Quebec. The brief contains various recommendations aimed at ensuring the transparent and rigorous management of public forests while working to alleviate regulatory constraints on responsible companies.
The recommendations suggested by Domtar include a proposal that the government appoint a chief forester to independently manage all activities related to establishing a maximum forest yield on public forests. Aside from forest planning, other industry concerns such as wood flow, mill production optimization, simplified stumpage fee calculations, forest certification and communication are addressed in the document.
