Forest Sections & Management Units

The forested portion of the province has been divided into ten Forest Sections that generally relate to common forest conditions throughout the Forest Section.

These Forest Sections are comprised of Forest Management Units that further define a forested area with common forest conditions that are managed in a similar manner.

Forest inventories within Forest Management Units are analyzed to determine allowable harvest limits of softwood and hardwood tree species within each Forest Management Unit.

In the near future a more ecological approach to defining forest management areas will more accurately represent the ecological processes and conditions found in Manitoba's forest ecosystems.
