Overview

  • The province collects Timber Dues and Crown Charges (Stumpage Fees) and other fees associated with timber dispositions.
  • These charges, collected under the authority of the Forests Act, ensure Albertans receive fair compensation for the use of publicly owned forest resources.
  • Timber dues rates are based on the current market prices of forest products and are adjusted periodically to reflect changes to current market conditions.
  • The tables used to determine dues rates are located in Schedules 3-7 of the Timber Management Regulation.
  • In the case of deciduous timber used to make pulp, the rates are indexed annually to account for inflation. Current indexed pulp rates
