Through the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP), landowners who get their property classified as ‘Managed Forest’ pay 25% of the municipal tax rate set for residential properties.
To participate in the MFTIP program, you must prepare and follow a 10-year Managed Forest Plan that details how you will manage your forest property responsibly.
This MFTIP workshop will walk the participants through the process of developing their own stewardship plan, that can be used to enroll their properties into the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program. It will also be useful to landowners already enrolled in the program, showing them how to work with the plan and refer back to it , once it is prepared,
The classroom portion will take about 3 hours and the outdoor visit to a nearby woodlot to demonstrate inventory techniques will take an additional 2 hours.
