Innovative Forest Solutions Forum

On February 23, 2021, the CIF-IFC National Office, in collaboration with the Manitoba and Saskatchewan Sections, hosted a virtual forum titled “Innovative Forum Solutions Forum”.

This knowledge exchange event was designed to connect relevant forest practitioners while facilitating the dissemination of current research and technologies within the two following research areas relevant to Saskatchewan and Manitoba:

  1. Soil mapping; and
  2. Growth and yield of trees under global change and adaptive silviculture.

The Forum had over 70 registrants and featured a combination of presentations from local and national experts focusing on the two topic areas above, and involved moderated group discussions amongst participants.

This event was made possible by a financial contribution from: Natural Resources Canada.

Thank you to all of our Forum participants, speakers, moderators and supporters!
