Forestry Services in Ontario

The Ontario forestry sector is poised for growth. With the establishment of a forest sector strategy, the provincial government has placed a focused effort on increasing business opportunities within a sector that has seen significant reductions since 2000. This is great news, not only for the province but for global fiber demand; Canada has some of the highest environmental standards in the world so increased global consumption will be met with forest products that are managed sustainably.
 
Silvacom is your spatial wood supply expert and has resources in Ontario available to help solve your business challenges.

The complexity of forest management has increased significantly over the past decade with organizations now required to consider multiple opportunities and constraints. Examples include:

  • Managing a wood basket with increased pressures
  • Natural disturbance (fires, insects)
  • Caribou habitat considerations
  • New entrants into the market
  • Evaluating alternative business strategies
  • Meeting or exceeding environmental requirements
  • Species at risk
  • Extensive stakeholder engagement and Indigenous consultation
