Our association continues to provide woodlot owners and loggers with technical advice and assistance along with marketing services. We offer a wide variety of forest management related services, which are outlined below.

Private Woodlot Silviculture

Administration of the Provincial Silviculture Agreement on Reforestation (planting) and pre-commercial thinning. This agreement provides funding to carry out this work. See the Silviculture Programs Through CVWPA page for more information.

 

 

Hardwood Log Service

CVWPA offers a service that includes the marking and bucking of hardwood logs so you can get the most money for your product and can dramatically increase your wood value. This can be performed either in your woodlot or here, in the office yard. This service can be accessed by simply calling the CVWPA office.

Land Management

The Land Management Services Program offers the woodlot owner a complete package that includes: a complete management plan (with or without inventory) that addresses the silvicultural, harvest, recreational and wildlife needs of your woodlot. We are an independent service that can plan and supervise a harvesting operation to ensure you receive the maximum value.

Slashing

Our slashing service is available to slash your tree length material, helping you meet mill specifications and maximize the value for your products.

Boundary Maintenance

We mark the boundary lines of your property. Good boundary lines make good neighbours and should be repainted every 5-10 years to avoid survey costs.

Road Location/Block Layout

Our staff can use our mapping resources to obtain information available from aerial photos. These photos outline your property and provide detail that can save a lot of walking time on the property.

Utilization Of Products

The Carleton-Victoria Forest Products Marketing Board will assist in getting you the most money out of your wood products by continuously assessing multiple available markets that ensures the best utilization of your wood products. We can make recommendations on ways to improve upon the woodlot and offer assistance in implementing changes.
