 Ontario does not determine an annual allowable cut in either area or volume. Area regulation is used to determine the level of harvest in hectares for a five year term (usually) within the context of a forest management plan for each forest management unit in the province. Forest management plans also provide estimates of the volumes of wood available from the allowable harvest area. The figures (both area and volumes) provided here are estimates of an average annual area and volume to approximate the annual allowable cut required for NFD reporting.
