Oxford County supports responsible forestry management practices and environmental stewardship of woodland areas within the County.
The County actively manages nine forests tracts totaling over 1,000 acres of woodlands across the County. Additionally, the County owns a number of properties that contain woodlots, meadows, thickets, and other environmentally sensitive features. In recent years, the County has enhanced efforts for reforestation and management of these lands and has planted over 15,000 trees on publicly-owned lands in the past three years. The County continues to work with local stewardship groups, woodlot owner organizations, and conservation authorities to improve the quality of the natural environment through conservation.
Reforest Oxford is also committed to good forestry conservation and management though their work advocating for enhancement of the natural environment, promoting of tree planting groups and programs, and connecting stewardship organizations with local landowners.
