Guideline Implementation

Given the voluntary nature of the guidelines, the SFRA requires the MFRC to establish implementation goals for various landowner categories. The MFRC initially established broad guideline implementation goals based on a set of defined criteria related to support, awareness, and commitment for guideline application (Implementation Goals for Timber Harvest and Forest Management Guidelines). In 2013, the MFRC initiated a multi-stakeholder assessment of historic guideline implementation to determine is levels were suitable to mitigate to impacts to forest resources. Following a year-long evaluation, the multi-stakeholder group concluded that impacts to forest resources were likely minimal and provided several recommendations related to policy, education, research, and monitoring.
