Sustainable Forest Management Services

We are passionate about sustainable and ethical forest management. Our core value is integrity in the service provided.

The best way to serve both the forest resource and our clients is through small, one-on-one interactions to lay a foundation of trust with the landowner that carries over the life of a forest stand. We provide forest management services to conservation authorities, local governments, land trusts, woodlot owners, and primary and secondary forest producers. We are committed to a win-win outcome: everyone feeling good about the interaction and good about the future of their forest.

Sustainable harvesting involves taking some trees while leaving others to continue and improve the stand. Tree marking is the process of choosing which trees to take, but most importantly which ones to leave behind.

Harvesting

We plan and oversee harvesting activities when necessary, ensuring we leave the client with forests better than we found them. Take the worst first, and leave the best to produce more just like them.
