Tembec has been awarded two Forest Stewardship Council certificates covering forestlands in the Kootenay region of British Columbia.

The certification of the Cranbook and Kootenay Lake forests comes on the heels of the earlier certification of the Invermere and Tree Farm License 14 forests. In all, Tembec has a total of 640,000 hectares of forests certified by FSC in British Columbia alone.

“The certification of these forests brings the total area under FSC certification to 8.6 million hectares, which represents approximately 90% of the Canadian forestland managed by Tembec,” said Dennis Rounsville, executive vice president and president of Tembec’s forest products group.
