What will your forest legacy be?
Your woodlot can make a difference.
Did you know that there are more than 80,000 private woodlot owners across the Maritimes, and thousands more across the entire Wabanaki Forest Region? Family forest owners, like you, are responsible for managing approximately 40% of the forestland in the Maritimes. That’s a whole lot of potential for responsible forest management.
Family forests are becoming ever more important as the climate changes, and the naturally diverse and resilient Wabanaki forest offers so much hope for the future. There are lots of forces at play and they don’t always support your desire for a diverse and productive forest. Many landowners don't necessarily want to clearcut, but are often driven to as a result of financial need. A lot of these things are out of our control. But there are some things that we can control — and that’s what this movement is all about.
This website houses resources that can help you manage your forest with ecological integrity and with an eye to the changing climate. The Maritime Forest Accord is designed to unlock the great potential of the Wabanaki forest by supporting your values and needs as a landowner.
