Forestry Management Plan

During 2010 the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources developed new forest plans for the crown land in our area for the next 10 years (2011‐2021). KAPOA reviewed and provided feedback on the plans at that time and we continue to monitor the Annual Work Schedules that are released each spring that describe the forestry activities taking place in our area. We reported on the forestry planning exercise at the 2010 AGM.

To review the plans and annual work schedules and to learn about how MNR manages forestry on crown lands please refer to the MNR web site: http://ontario.ca/forestplans

Our area is divided into two Forest Management Units. While each forest management unit follows the same forest planning manual, the plans are developed independently.

  • Bancroft‐Minden FMU 220 – managed out of the MNR Bancroft office
  • Ottawa‐Valley FMU 780– managed out of the MNR Pembroke office

There are many aspects to forestry in our area. Operations consist of harvesting but also replanting, tending, renewal and maintenance and road building. The details of each year’s activities are outlined in the Annual Work Schedule text and on a series of summary and operations maps.
