Ron Reynolds

Ron Reynolds is a hunting enthusiast and wildlife carver who joined the Ontario Woodlot Association while attending a Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP) workshop. He owns recreational properties and is part of a hunting club which owns additional adjoining acreage. Ron is in the process of preparing his first MFTIP plan and will be recommending the hunting club become an OWA member.

He likes the fact that the OWA’s efforts on behalf of woodlot owners has resulted in the MFTIP and is looking forward to learning more about how to take care of his forest.

  • Smith Family
    Smith Family

    For the Smith family, their connection to the forest goes back over a century, and at least four generations. Located in what’s known as the Frontenac Axis, their woodlot has the mixture of white pine, white cedar and sugar maple typical of that landscape.

    Kallista Smith joined the OWA after attending a field day, and immediately got involved on the Limestone chapter board. Her mother, Tracie, followed suit at the next AGM, and Kallista’s brother Justin joined the next year, after returning back to the area from college.

    The Smith family has always been interested in identifying plants in the forest and have already hosted one field day on their family property. Tracie is in the process of registering a forest management plan under the MFTIP, something she heard about after joining the OWA. The family wants to host another event, this time in the spring, with a focus on wildflowers.

    As Justin puts it, “Belonging to the OWA introduces you to like-minded people. The return in education is well worth the membership.”
