Forestry and Peatlands

The Forestry and Peatlands Management Branch serves to maintain and enhance benefits for every Manitoban through The Forestry Act, The Forest Health Protection Act, The Peatlands Stewardship and Related Amendments Act, and associated regulations and policies. The Branch works closely with staff in regional services to ensure that the programs and services are delivered consistently across the province. (For regional forestry and peatlands activities, please see the Parks and Regional Services section of this report.)

The Forestry and Peatlands Management Branch has three sections: Planning and Development, Inventory and Analysis, and Urban Forestry, Health and Field Services.
