What are the benefits of Forestry?
Your local Western Forestry Co-op forester will call out and inspect your land, explain the scheme and options to you and submit an application for afforestation approval on your behalf. You are under no obligation to plant your land when you receive this approval and an approval is currently valid for 36 months,
so you have time to decide if forestry is the best option for you. Please note that an application for approval can take 3 – 6 months so apply now and you will have the choice of planting next spring.
Please contact Western Forestry Co-op for more information.
