The forested areas on lands are often overlooked for their values by many, but these forests and other treed areas often extremely valuable, holding values both in their ability to be sold as a product, and through natural functions that trees can provide while living. This document seeks to introduce you to major values and to help realise the potential that is in these areas.
As a landowner you want to do the right thing for your property. The Green Acreages Guide Primer, an introduction to rural living, can help you better understand what it means to be a rural property owner and identify stewardship practices that will help you conserve and protect the valuable natural assets associated with your property.
New content! The Green Acreages Guide Primer has been updated with new and updated links in “Further Resources” as well as new information for acreages owners on “Resource Development and Extraction” and “Easements and Rights-of-Way”.
