Forest Practices Board has Completed its Audit of Tanizul Timber.

During the summer of 2015, the Forest Practices Board (FPB) did a thorough audit (inspection) of our field practices as well as our documentation and reporting practices.  On April 7, 2016, the Forest Practices Board released reporting documents, see below.

 Forest Practices Board Report

For the record, at Tanizul Timber, we take fire hazard assessment and fire hazard abatement very seriously.  Our documentation was poor and we will easily be able to improve on that.  Also, we learned a lot through the audit process.  We realize there is in fact room for improvement in many areas.
