Your property's woodland and other natural areas are significant assets that benefit from management as does any other investment.
As well as contributing to property values, natural areas provide you and your family with many benefits – a place to view wildlife, outdoor recreation, perhaps personal firewood or maple syrup, a place for personal reflection and solitude, and – for some - income from periodic forest harvesting.
Managing for these environmental values as you undertake the stewardship of your property,
while meeting your own objectives, can provide
great personal satisfaction as well as
enhancing your property's value.
Everyone’s woodland property is different, as well as their objectives. Little remains static over time in a woodland - it's important to know what is happening and to manage accordingly. A site inspection and inventory, with you, is the essential first step for meeting a property’s potential.
We will work with you to develop and implement a practical management program designed specifically for your woodland to meet your objectives.
Upon completion of any management or stewardship plan, tree marking or other work, we remain committed to your plan's implementation by
providing support by e-mail or telephone at no cost.
