FSC® Certification for Small Woodlot Owners

 

The Association has developed and maintained a program to certify small woodlot owners to the Forest Stewardship Council® standard.  FSC® is an independant forest standard that measures success in acheiving responsible forest management, based on strict ecological, social and economic requirements.

As part of the program, the Association will develop a management plan for your woodlot, maintain all required certification related documentation, administer the certification, and monitor any harvesting and silviculture activities on your woodlot to ensure they comply with the FSC® standard. 

This program has been a huge success, and by October 2013 had 231 members and 26,075 certified hectares. For more information, or to apply to join the program, please contact us.
