Conserving and Protecting the Integrity and Longevity of Forest Lands
The Natural Resources Management Department is committed to maintaining a permanent forest resource that delivers the full range of
benefits that forests can provide now and in the future. This entails protecting the integrity and longevity of forest lands. To protect
the integrity and longevity of forest lands the department will:
- Implement integrated management plans that link the long-term strategies for the desired future conditions of the forest with
short-term, tactical plans through to site level operating plans. Plans will define operating objectives and requirements.
- Where possible, consolidate lands through exchange, sale, or acquisition.
- Prevent the encroachment of dissimilar land uses.
