A multitude of products can be harvested from the forest. Some of them are roundwood, such as industrial roundwood and fuelwood or firewood. Others are maple products and Christmas trees. Roundwood - Sections of tree stems, with or without bark. Included are logs, bolts, pulpwood, posts, pilings, and other products still "in the round" in the subcategory called industrial roundwood. Also included are fuelwood (for industrial or institutional needs) and firewood (for household or recreational needs). Christmas Trees - Mainly pine and balsam fir. Maple Products - Syrup, sugar, taffy, and butter.To provide the most recently available authoritative data on forest products in Canada.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
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. Maple Products - The totals for maple products are compiled by Statistics Canada. With the 1996-1997 survey, the National Forestry Database dropped the breakdown by ownership. It should be noted that the data presented for the Northwest Territories includes statistical information for Nunavut, which was established on April 1, 1999.
