1998-1999 State of the Forest Report

The report presents information on a set of six criteria and eighteen local level indicators that cover a range of environmental, social and economic concerns and uses the Criteria and Indicators framework developed by the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers. While these eighteen indicators are by no means complete, they do represent a practical starting point.

This report will provide guidance to woodland owners who participate in a biodiversity monitoring network.

Community Experiences in Urban Forestry

Community Experiences in Urban Forestry brings attention to some of the critical issues in our urban forest ecosystems and, more importantly, highlights some of the many community successes in responding to these issues.

This workshop leads participants through the various characteristics that taxonomists use to distinguish between species: terms like simple and compound leaves, opposite and alternate.

This set of six workshop modules addresses management planning, marking and harvesting, sugar bush problems, maple orchards, and maple facts.

This workshop describes various definitions of the term, and outlines some of the structural and functional characteristics that characterize old-growth forests.

This workshop will guide forest managers, including private woodlot owners, through the issues and options associated with such a complex and far-reaching topic.

This workshop introduces participants to aspects of quality in logs and sawn lumber that influence the market price.

This workshop, a series of seven modules, covers a wide range of topics pertaining to private woodlot management, and specifically to managing conifer plantations.

Modules:

  1. Introduction to Plantation Management
  2. Managing Your Plantation
  3. Forest Operations
  4. Timber Sales and Marketing
  5. Biodiversity and Wildlife Values
  6. Plantation Problems
  7. Restoring Your Plantation

This presentation, along with a primer on biodiversity, are a set of natural indicators -- plants and animals -- whose presence you can track over time. By following these indicators over time, you'll be able to measure the health and diversity of your woodlot.
