Trees Ontario Fall 2009 Landowner Workshop Series

Fall, 2009 – The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Trees Ontario, along with the Ontario Forestry Association (OFA) and local partners will host a series of six free tree planting workshops for landowners across the province in October 2009. The workshops will focus on tree planting techniques and the programs and incentives available to landowners interested in planting trees, including the 50 Million Tree Program and the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP).

The workshops aim to build success off the most recent spring tree planting season that saw close to 3 million trees planted across southern Ontario

including more than 2 million trees planted as part of the 50 Million Tree Program. Combined with trees planted through other local tree planting programs, this was the largest spring tree planting seen in Ontario since the 1980’s.

Interested landowners are invited to attend a workshop in their area and make new connections with Trees Ontario field advisors, the OFA, local planting agency partners and other landowners.

Space is limited and pre-registration is appreciated.
