Testimonials

I am proud to support such a great organization and look forward to reading about all the positive work you all do! Although I live out west I have family members and a special old friend living in Ontario still. Thanks for all you do.


Jim Cook, Saskatchewan

I grew up in Calgary but went to university in Ontario where I regularly visited friends on their farm. Now living in Saudi Arabia, I have many pleasant memories of the treed Ontario landscape and am proud to support an organization that is dedicated to the wise use of forests. The forests of Ontario are a resource that are, in the context of where I currently live, amazingly beautiful and absolutely priceless.

Matt Stephansson; Saudi Arabia

When I considered becoming a Friend of the Ontario Woodlot Association, a flood of memories filled my mind. My father had many talents, one being as a sawyer, owning his own sawmill. He purchased woodlots and in turn, taught my brother and I how and why it was important to log responsibly, not only so the forest could renew itself, but also for the animals and birds that inhabited these areas. I'm proud to be a Friend of the OWA; keep up the good work.

Joan Wood-Brant; Deseronto, On.

    Duncan Hough

    Duncan and Ruth Hough are seventh generation farmers who currently grow corn, soybeans, wheat and hay.

    While past generations relied on their woodlots for firewood, fence posts, building material and some maple syrup, Duncan and Ruth also enjoy the Trilliums, Hepaticas, Trout Lilies and other forest flowers that flourish in their woods. For them, the woods are a source of pleasure and recreation as well as a means to heat their home.

    To Duncan and Ruth, OWA membership allows them to keep up to date on sustainable forest practices as well as tree diseases, invasive species and other threats to their woodlands.
