Sustainably managing our forests is more than planting trees. Our commitment to the environment is a promise to use our resources responsibly and to take ongoing steps to reduce our environmental impact.

We harvest a renewable resource in an environmentally responsible manner and through forest management consistent with government regulation. We aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and chemicals, monitor energy and material consumption, and recycle oil products and other materials. West Fraser’s staff supports research and work with experts to find better ways to manage the forest for wildlife habitat and different forest values. We are proud of our reforestation record of nearly two billion trees planted. We are exploring new ways to improve our reforestation and silviculture practices.

Our manufacturing plants have superior systems in place to treat and filter water and air discharges from our facilities, but we are always improving. Read more about our operations and our efforts in reducing our environmental impact in ManufacturingAir & GHG’s and Water.
