2014 Program Summary

Attached here is our program summary for 2014. The program has grown to close to 50,000 acres, and 390 woodlots. With this growth we have had to 'scale-up' many of our management systems, and a lot of time has been spent over the last year working on this. These changes include both technical ones as well as how we manage for special features and High Conservation Values. We beleive the time and work invested will allow us to continue providing good service as the program grows.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to contact us.
