Woodlot organizations merge

The Eastern Ontario Model Forest (EOMF) is merging with the Ontario Woodlot Association (OWA). Both already share office space and one staff member at Kemptville.

OWA executive director John Pineau is now heading both organizations.


EOMF general manager Astrid Nielsen wants to devote her full attention to her forest management company and Jim Hendry, who managed tbe woodlot certification program, is semi-retiring and working at his forest management company.

Pineau says the move is being viewed by both organizations as “an opportunity” that had been talked about as a possibility for several years.
