Trees Ontario provides a large subsidy for tree planting over five acres. We strive for exceptional planting quality with high tree survival. Over the last several years
Lands & Forests Consulting has planted in excess of one million tree seedlings. Landowners with more than 10 acres of forest will qualify for property tax reduction under the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program. Lands & Forests Consulting will develop a detailed site plan based on results from our initial site visit. Included in the plan is the landowner objectives, trees to be planted, size of area to be planted, soil study and any other details to be included.

Lands & Forest Consulting will take many of the following variables into account when helping you select a species. Type of soil, potential for good growth rates, potential for mature trees to set seed,determine what local pests and/or diseases might hinder the success of the plantation, and potential for survival and establishment.
