How We Can Help


Would you like to have a Speaker or Consultant from the Trust for Sustainable Forestry come speak to your group, NGO or local jurisdiction about the benefits, and potential pitfalls of creating an eco-forestry conservation community?

We have experienced professionals who can lead you through the complex maze of acquiring, rezoning, developing and marketing a conservation community in your local neighbourhood.

We can let you know what makes this form of development and planning unique, and appropriate for your forested settings. We can provide expert advice on the best practices involved in creating conservation communities. Our presentations and workshops include examples from other conservation communities and the lived experience of community members.
