Planning Documents - 2001 Forest Management Plan

Hearst Forest

The planning area for Hearst Forest is located in the Northeast Region of the Ministry of Natural Resources and in the judicial districts of Hearst and Cochrane; it is primarily within the municipal boundaries of Hearst and Mattice. The northern boundary of the planning area is located approximately 100 kilometres from the centre of Hearst. The western boundary, southern boundary and eastern boundary are 120 km, 120 km and 30 km respectively from the centre of Hearst.

The Hearst Forest covers an area of approximately 180,000 hectares. It includes the full range of forest types prevalent in the Boreal Forest Region. Most of the mature forest originated due to fires, and much of the forest is overmature due to fire suppression in recent decades.

The forest is managed under the authority of a sustainable forest licence, which has been issued by MNR to Hearst Forest Management Inc. This company has been established through a partnership between Lecours Lumber Co. Ltd. and Tembec Industries Inc.
