    When you are carrying activities in the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP), activities are to be carried out according to “good forestry practices” as defined in the Forestry Act.

    Good forestry practices means “the proper implementation of harvest, renewal and maintenance activities known to be appropriate for the forest and environmental conditions under which they are being applied and that minimize detriments to forest values including significant ecosystems, important fish and wildlife habitat, soil and water quality and quantity, forest productivity and health and the aesthetics and recreational opportunities of the landscape.”

    Tree cutting is to be carried out according to MNR’s silvicultural guides. Guides are available from the Natural
    Resources Information Centre.
