Forest Description

The Nighthawk Forest, is an amalgamation of the Driftwood Forest, Timmins Forest and the Timmins Management Unit. It is bound on the west by the Gordon Cosens Forest, on the north and west by the Smooth Rock Falls Forest, on the east by the Iroquois Falls Forest and the Timiskaming Forest and on the south and west by the Romeo Malette Forest.

The Nighthawk Forest lies in the northern Clay and the Missinaibi-Cabonga Sections of the Boreal Forest Region. The portion of the forest in the Northern Clay Section is conditioned by widespread surface deposits of water-worked tills and lacustrine materials, and has a nearly level topography. One characteristic of this area is the large expanses of black spruce forest stands that cover the gently rising uplands as well as the flat lowlands. Other species associated with the lowlands are tamarack and cedar. Jack pine dominates many of the drier sites within the forest. Poplar species can be found primarily on finer textured upland lacustrine deposits while white birch is found on a variety of sites with good drainage within the forest.

In February, 2000 Abitibi-Consolidated purchased Donohue Forest Products Inc. and as a result, all three units will now be managed by Abitibi-Consolidated.

Abitibi-Consolidated will be the sole holder of a Sustainable Forest License for the combined forests and will be responsible for meeting or exceeding all of the terms and conditions of the new Sustainable Forest License.
