Core Activities


After many years of promoting good forest management with modest impact, the certification program offered a new and better approach. It provides the landowner with excellent management advice, third party recognition for good forest management and the prospect of better return for harvested timber. The FSC program is suitable for the smaller woodlot owner, the EOMF provides a means to act on behalf of the woodlot owners and I was pleased to actively promote this program during my tenure as President of EOMF. Due to the hard work of many people the program is a success and I am pleased to have been and continue to be a part of this very worthwhile program
