Fraser Lake 2017 Forest Stewardship Plans

Fraser Lake Sawmills (FLSM) is a sawmill and bioenergy facility in Fraser Lake, British Columbia. We are beginning our public review process for two proposed Forest Stewardship Plans (FSP). These FSPs will cover our operations in the Prince George Timber Supply Area and the Lakes Timber Supply Area. An approved FSP allows for the harvest of timber and construction of roads within a forest development unit (FDU).
