Urban Forestry and Eco-Forestry
Our personnel have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the management of tree populations in an urban setting. We seek to improve the surrounding environment. By planning and maintaining trees as well as forest preservation and research, our urban foresters can preserve the life of many tree populations within the urban environment.

By helping an area of forest grow independently over many years, practitioners of eco-forestry create a harmonious environment for all natural habitats to flourish.

Ethic Tree Creations practice Ontario Woodlot Association methodology:
Tree Marking – involves the careful selection of trees for harvest (under a partial cutting system), based on a forest management prescription. Specific trees are selected to be cut or left, based on their growth potential, ability to provide seed or wildlife benefits in the forest. This selection process takes into consideration numerous individual tree characteristics, not just tree size. Each tree to be cut is marked with paint to ensure that the prescription is followed.
We pride ourselves on educating the public on how to give back to the environment. From school groups to board members, Ethic Tree Creations will help plant trees or give an educational talk on an issue you are concerned about. Let us help you reduce your carbon footprint!
