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.

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.
