Private woodlots in Canada's Maritime Provinces face serious management problems. Stakeholders agree unsustainable management will have negative economic, social and environmental impacts. The report, calling for action by both the public and private sectors, outlines recommendations for provincial and federal tax reforms to encourage sustainable woodlot management practices, the establishment of an industry/woodlot-owner trust fund, mandatory licensing and training programs, the development of codes of practice and cooperative ventures among stakeholder groups.
