As Tembec is currently in seed planting operations the forestry company, previously Spruce Falls, has just begun re-harvesting an area which was planted in the 1920s. Planning Superintendent for Forest Operations at Tembec, Kevin Del Guidice says the areas of replanted forest which will be harvested is increasing. Del Guidice says sustainability is vital to regulating costs, keeping up with demand and keeping to harvesting within a single region for the next hundred years. In the spring of 2012 Tembec celebrated 300 million trees planted in the Gordon Cosens Forest. Del Guidice says Dan Simis and Chad McQuade lost both their lives in 2011 in reforesting operations and the milestone was dedicated to them both. This year two planters will be celebrating one-million tree milestones.
