Forest Management Planning Workshop

Trees Ontario Field Advisor Glenn McLeod will be attending and presenting on landowner subsidies in Roblin, ON.

Trees Ontario, working with its partners, is the largest, not-for-profit tree planting partnership in North America. Trees Ontario’s goal is to restore the province’s tree planting capacity, especially throughout southern Ontario on private lands, by providing funding and planning support for its tree planting partners.

With our partners, Trees Ontario planted nearly 3 million trees in 2011. Our goal is to support the planting of 10 million trees per year by 2015. To help put Ontario on the path to achieving this goal, Trees Ontario is seeking landowners to participate in its programs.

Landowners must have a minimum of 2.5 acres (1 hectare) of cleared productive land, commit to a 15-year forest management agreement, and make a minimum contribution to tree planting costs.

We encourage all landowners interested in large-scale tree planting on their properties to drop by our booth at any of the above events or call us at 1.877.646.1193.
