Forest Enhancement Program (FEP): Forestry Services for Private Forest Land Owners

Do you own woodland on PEI?

If you own woodland on PEI, the Forest Enhancement Program (FEP) can provide you with forestry-related advice and financial assistance. The program has helped thousands of Island woodlot owners manage their woodlands for recreation, forest products, wildlife habitat, forest restoration and health, and many other reasons and values.

Can I get help managing my private forest land?

Yes. The province will provide you with technical advice and financial assistance through the Forest Enhancement Program. The Private Land Regions Map can connect you with the FEP forester or forest technician who works in your area.

In order to participate, you need to:

Once your FEP Forest Management Plan Funding application is approved, you need to have a forest management plan prepared for your woodland. Plans are prepared by private sector forest consultants who will meet with you and prepare a Forest Management Plan tailored to your interests and the potential of your forest lands.
