<p>This is a generalized feature layer. For the full shapefile, visit the Land Information Ontario website link in the attributes, or e-mail email@example.com.<br /></p><p>A Forest Management Unit (FMU) is a designated administrative area that depicts a forest management boundary. The area within these boundaries are used for forest resource planning and management purposes of the Crown Forest Sustainability Act. An FMU is primarily identified by an assigned official name and a unique numeric code. The Forest Management Branch - Forest Management Planning Section of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, approves FMU boundaries, codes and official names.</p><p></p><p>Legislated or Legal Authority for Collection: Crown Forest Sustainability Act.</p><p>Additional Time Period Information: Depicted Forest Management Unit boundaries and attributes ONLY reflect their current status as of the date provided above. Business needs often necessitate the alteration (enlarging, reducing or combining) of Forest Management Unit extents. In other words, the provincial FMU cover version from 2000 would be different from the 1997 version, since many alterations have occurred. Data is collected on an on-going basis therefore the time period 'end date' may be more recent than indicated above.</p>
