    Forest Certification

     As large retailers have increasingly stated their intent to sell wood products coming from sustainably managed forests, forest certification is beginning to gain interest amongst private woodlot owners. Having a forest certified provides access to unique markets and increases the potential for additional revenue.

    Forest certification is a voluntary option through which forests are certified against a strict set of environmental and social standards. Certification is subject to ongoing, third-party audits.

    Forest Certification is a webpage sponsored by the Eastern Ontario Model Forest (EOMF). Here you can find information about EOMF's forest certification program and learn how you can have your woodlot or your wood products certified.

    The Eastern Ontario Certified Forest Owners: If you have modest earnings from your woodlot you might think that the cost of certification would outweigh the potential benefits. Think again! Group certification is a relatively new option and more economical for small woodlot owners. This group of smaller woodlot owners in eastern Ontario decided to pursue group certification to help disperse the cost.

    Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification is one of four certification systems supported in Ontario. Based on EOMF research, FSC is the most feasible system for small private woodlot owners. The FSC website explains the certification process and the benefits of responsible forest management.
