Fiber supply is the major input for Tembec’s manufacturing operations
In addition to timber from our forest tenures, Tembec’s Canadian wood fiber requirements are also met with deliveries from our free holds, open market purchases and exchanges on either a spot or contract basis (business to business). As wood fiber is the major input to Tembec’s manufacturing processes, extensive efforts are made to develop state of the art forest inventories and develop long term wood supply projections by tree species and product type. Aerial inventory techniques, geographic information systems and spatial timber supply models are used to plan the forest operations and cost scenarios that ensure forest sustainability and economic viability objectives are met.
