Professionally trained team experienced in the aspects of prescribed burn planning. Fire intelligence, behaviour, communications, ignition, suppression and safety.
A woodlot assessment is a critical stepping stone in ensuring you are able to get maximum value while ensuring wildlife and future concerns are considered and dealt with.
Tree Marking involves the careful selection of trees for harvest (under a partial cutting system), based on a forest management prescription. The decisions made by a tree marker are complex - part art and part science.
Involves several very important and significant steps towards ensuring that you will receive the best possible price for your timber and that your wood lot will be properly logged.

“This is an amazing team to work with, their attention to detail, hard working ethic is key to their success.”Amanda Scott
Jesse was instrumental in leading a forestry unit for the students at SDSS. He created a fantastic presentation that focused on forestry as a career opportunity as well as the importance of managing one of Ontario’s greatest natural resources. He captured the students attention both in the classroom and on field trips. He took a bus load of students into forest plots where the students completed a tree inventory, collecting all of the metrics for a 25 acre plot. He also led them on a tour of a recently harvested location to highlight the process and identify key species. Jesse inspired two students to pursue forestry at post secondary education and gave all the students a true appreciation of the diverse tree species in our community. Jesse demonstrated himself as a true community partner, investing in our students.
“Lands and Forests Consulting have been helping us to abate the threat of fire suppression in tall-grass prairie habitat through prescribed burning in the Rice Lake Plains area for a decade. They have provided us with exceptional knowledge and professionalism that delivers on the ground results!”
~Val Deziel at the Nature Conservancy
I hired Lands and Forests Consulting to help me determine the best course for managing my woodlot. After a thorough assessment of the property, Jesse and his crew marked the bush, tendered the contract and supervised the logging to completion. Each step was carefully explained and professionally handled. I found these services to be especially helpful to an owner with limited experience dealing with a sizeable logging contract. I highly recommend the staff of Lands and Forests Consulting.Paul Scott
