About Kerry McLaven, Forests Ontario, Forest Program Manager

Forests Ontario is dedicated to the renewal and stewardship of Ontario's forests. Forests Ontario was created as a result of the merger of two not-for-profit organizations: Trees Ontario and the Ontario Forestry Association (OFA). Trees Ontario was committed to the re-greening of Ontario through tree planting on private rural lands, and the OFA was focused on education surrounding the management of our forest ecosystems. Together, as a unified voice, Forests Ontario will take forest renewal efforts to new heights, encouraging and supporting landowners in their efforts to plant and manage their forests, and creating a strong public presence advocating for abundant, healthy and sustainable forests. The merger creates an organization with enhanced capacity and effectiveness to tackle the challenge of supporting our forests - a key renewable resource in Ontario. Forests Ontario is the voice for Ontario's forests. We are a provincial resource and trusted authority for those seeking to invest in the future of our forests - through donations, sponsorship, volunteerism, tree planting, community awareness events and forest management.
