➤ Woodlot Management
At Ground to Crown we can come to your woodlot and, in consultation with you, create a management plan for your woodlot. Weather your goals are timber management, wildlife habitat or non-timber forest products like maple syrup, we will create a plan to suit your needs. Developing a woodlot management plan will help you systematically achieve the goals that are important to you.
Silviculture is the practice of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of forests to meet diverse needs and values. Ground to Crown’s owner/operator has more than 15 years in the forestry industry. We would be happy to come assess your woodlot and discuss your options for management.
We offer the following treatments:

Manual Weeding of Plantations and natural stands: Removing undesirable species throughout a natural stand.
Pre-commercial Thinning (PCT) of Plantations: Thinning out an area that has been planted before the trees reach a merchantable size.
Pre-commercial Thinning (PCT) of Natural Stands: Thinning out a natural stand before the trees reach a merchantable size.
Commercial Thinning: Removal of commercial sized timber from a stand to give reaming trees more room to grow.
