Forests critical to BC economy

The forest sector is critical to the BC economy as outlined by Forest Innovation Investments http://www.bcfii.ca/bc-forests-and-markets/bc-forest-sector-overview. The sector provides 36% of provincial exports, is the primary BC employer, supports 7,000 BC businesses and contributes $2.5B to governments.

How can we maintain these contributions over the long-term without a vision, goals and action plan to maintain the forest asset to provide the necessary timber?
