Future Generations

Are you a Nova Scotian woodlot owner?  When you think about your woodlot and forestry, what topics are most important?
  • Legacy - the future?  for you, for your children?  for the forest itself?
  • Forest Practises - clear cutting, the way our forests are currently being managed?
  • Knowledge - your own lack of knowledge, skills and time for managing your woodland?
  • Financial - things that are related to money?
A recent study was based on interviews with landowners.

The above -- in the order presented -- is a summary of the findings.  You can read the complete 150+ page report here .

Do these findings jive with your views?


A big shout out to Andrew Kekacs for sharing his Master's thesis and giving me permission to reference it,
