Woodlot Management Homestudy Program

" Have you ever wondered how to grow more wood, improve wildlife habitat on your woodlot or maintain and safely operate your chainsaw?"

Developed for those who want to learn more about managing their woodlands, each easy-to-understand module of the Home Study Series covers basic ideas backed by descriptive illustrations.

You decide which module to study and proceed at your own pace. Modules can be obtained through the mail, or studied online.

In some regions department staff may conduct field days to support the material.

  • You can also sign up for our regular Woodlot Owners newsletter and receive e-mail notification of courses and events.
