Welcome to the Association for Sustainable Forestry!


New Transition Funding

Funding is being administered through the Association for Sustainable Forestry to assist woodland owners and contractors in completing silviculture work on private woodland. Inquiries can be directed to info@asforestry.com or phone 902-895-1179.
 


The Association for Sustainable Forestry is a progressive organization which provides small private woodland owners with the financial means to implement forest improvement work on their properties.

By taking a leading role in the principles and practices of Forest Stewardship, the Association works with silviculture contractors, woodland owner groups, and individuals to allocate and monitor the silviculture funds available through the provisions of the Nova Scotia Forests Act. Serving as a conduit between woodland owners and the forest industry, the Association is dedicated to ensuring the future health and enhancement of resources on privately owned woodlands.
