|Operating our own sawmill, Forest Insight Limited produces a diverse product line including firewood, lumber and hardwood flooring. We also offer forestry consulting and silviculture services to woodlot owners.
Forest Insight Limited has an on-going commitment to conservation of our environment. Planting crews have planted 5.5 million trees - all on private land owned by small woodlot owners in Cape Breton. Thousands of acres of thinning has been accomplished in young softwood and mixedwood stands. Large amounts of wood were salvaged from insect ravaged woodlots and sold as pulp, logs or firewood. Without the silviculture operations most of this wood would have been left to rot, meaning a loss to the industry and the landowner.
The company always held high standards and a professional attitude when working with landowners and their property.
Forest Insight Limited was incorporated in 1983 as a consulting company developing forest management plans for individual woodlot owners. Recommendations included various forms of silviculture treatments such as tree planting, thinning of young growth stands, salvage cutting in diseased stands, shelterwood cuts in hardwood stands, etc.
We developed a rapport with woodlot owners to ensure his or her objectives were respected in the management plan. Roads and surveying of property lines were planned and harvesting was suggested for mature stands of wood. The land adjoining the woodlot was also considered, especially with respect to wildlife habitat that might be affected by work done on one side of a man made boundary line.
Over the years, the form of the forest management plans changed as the company became more streamlined and less formal. Hundreds of thousands of acres of land were studied in various ways over the years, and contact of some sort was made with most of those woodlot owners.
