Prince Edward Island participates in the National Forestry Database by contributing yearly summary data, including: forest inventory, wood supply, forest fires, forest insects, forest products, silviculture, revenues and pest control product use. The National Forestry Database is Canada's Compendium of Forestry Statistics, serving as our national source of credible, accurate, and reliable forestry statistics.
The principal role of the National Forestry Database is to collect and compile national forest data and forest management statistics. The National Forest Database serves as Canada’s credible, accurate, and reliable source of national information on forest management and its impact on the forest resource.
Mandated through the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers, a partnership composed of fourteen federal, provincial and territorial ministers, the Canadian Forest Service at Natural Resources Canada developed and maintains the database and has responsibility for disseminating national forestry statistics. With the guiding support of members, the Canadian Forest Service collects data from provincial or territorial resource management organizations. Federal land data are provided by the responsible federal departments and compiled by the CFS.

The sample dataset found here provides annual information on number of forest fires occurring on Prince Edward Island.
This data set provides pesticide sample analyses results for stream sediment samples for the province’s Pesticide Monitoring Program. The sampling includes sampling a total of nine rivers across PEI, with three of the rivers being sampled each year.
Sediment samples are collected once in July, twice in August (once during a normal/dry weather and once during wet weather), and once in September. The two samples in July and September are collected during dry weather.
Sediment sampling involves Department staff collecting sediment from the stream bed of the site, using a small shovel. Samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis.
These samples are collected in the same rivers as the Stream Water and the Finfish/Shellfish Pesticide datasets.
Information collected from the Oyster Monitoring Program. Information includes sample collection site, date, time, water temperature, total oyster larvae, concentration, size range and larvae > 250.
