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.

    Dave Sexsmith

    Dave first joined the OWA at the invitation of a friend and he has been an active member since. He has served on his chapter’s board and hosted field days for the organization.

    Through his involvement with the OWA, Dave has met many people who share his fascination with trees and enjoy exchanging experiences and ideas. Knowledge gained has allowed Dave to better appreciate the ability of the forest to provide products for our use and still be the biodiversity centre of our province.

    Through tree planting and natural regeneration, Dave, and his wife Lois, have seen their old farm fields convert into a treed landscape, providing wildlife corridors and habitat.

    A lifelong woodworker, Dave produces a wide range of woodland products, from firewood and lumber to carved burl bowls while, at the same time, observing how his property is evolving back to mature forest.

    Of his experience with the OWA Dave says “I came out to get answers to my forestry questions; I’ve stayed because of the quality of people I’ve met.”
