  1. Resource Advice
    Obtain on the ground advice on the health and management options for your woodlot or tree planting plans.
  2. Management Plans (MFTIP)
    The Ontario Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP) is designed to encourage landowner participation in natural resource stewardship on private forest land in Ontario. Under the MFTIP, qualifying forest lands (excluding residences) are reassessed similar to farm land values and taxed at 25% of the residential tax rate. To participate in the MFTIP, landowners must agree to certain conditions including preparing and following a Managed Forest Plan for their forest.
  3. Timber Marking
    Tree marking involves the selection of trees for harvest for commercial sale based on a forest management prescription. Trees are selected for harvest or retention based on their quality, wildlife benefits and other characteristics. Each tree to be cut is marked with paint to ensure that the prescription is followed through the marking and harvest operations.
  4. Timber Marketing
    Advertise the sale of your timber products to more Commercial Loggers to obtain the highest bid possible.
  5. Harvest Monitoring
    Ensure that harvest operations are completed carefully and protect the future value of your woodlot.
  6. Tree Planting
    Why plant trees? - enhance the aesthetic values of your property - sequester carbon - enhance and diversify the landscape - increase adaptive capacity to withstand climate change - moderate local climate by providing shade - moderating temperature extremes and reducing the effects of storms - increase wildlife habitat - increase soil and water conservation - provide local economic opportunities
