Quality Roundwood - Prior to 1990, Statistics Canada received provincial Crown land
information from the provincial/territorial agencies responsible for forest
management and made its own estimates for private land information. As of 1990,
the National Forestry Database receives all the information from the
provincial/territorial and ... federal agencies responsible for forest management.
Only some details for Ontario private lands are estimated.
Christmas Trees - With the 1996-1997 survey, the National Forestry
Database dropped the breakdown by ownership.
