Our Forest FriendsOur Forest FriendsOur forests have been our salvation and the source of so much that we depend on. One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is very good site enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people. The planting of trees means improved water quality, resulting in less runoff and erosion. This allows more recharging of the ground water supply. Wooded areas help prevent the transport of sediment and chemicals into streams.Trees can add value to your home, help cool your home and neighborhood, break the cold winds to lower your heating costs, and provide food for wildlife.  This section is dedataed to the "standing people" our trees.  Bryce Nelson said "People who will not sustain trees will soon live in a world that will not sustain people."

Our landscape is now very different from the one encountered by our province’s first settlers. Other than scattered remnants of the original forest, southern Ontario woodlands are the result of 200 years of human settlement activities. The original forest was viewed mostly as an impediment to settlement and travel, something to be conquered or exploited for whatever value it had, rather than managed. In fact the timber volume produced during land clearing was so great there was little market for it. As a result many areas were simply burned.
