Landowner Workshop - Information and Tree Planting

The Peterborough County Stewardship Council is holding a Woodlot Management Workshop for Landowners!

The goal of the workshop is to provide landowners with a variety of information that will be useful for managing your woodlot.

The day will begin at 9:00am with coffee and refreshments. Displays will be set up by various organizations such as Forests Ontario, Ontonabee Region Conservation Authority, the Kawartha Land Trust, the Kawartha Farm Stewardship Collaborative, and the Managed Forest Tax Incentive program. There will be a brief introduction given by the Peterborough County Stewardship Council as well as the Kawartha Land Trust, followed by a guided tour of the Dance property focusing on tree species identification. Following this walk there will be a brief break for water and refreshments as well as a demonstration of invasive species control by Kyle Borrowman from the Invasive Species Program. The demonstration will focus on the removal of European Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica) and information on other common invasive species will be provided. The day will conclude with a tree planting demonstration after which landowners will be able to participate in tree planting.
