Next Generation's services
include pre-commercial thinning, commercial thinning, harvesting,
management plans and planting (although we do not have our own planting
crew, we make arrangements for lots that we harvest to be planted if
Our silviculture services (pre-commercial
thinning, commercial thinning and planting) are funded by large
companies and government associations such as NewPage Port Hawkesbury
(formerly StoraEnso), EnLigna (formerly MacTara), Wagner Forest
Management Ltd., and the Association for Sustainable Forestry. The
demand for these services continue to increase annually.
Next Generation has provided forest
management services to over 150 private sector clients. Some of our
clients are absentee owners and reside outside of Nova Scotia.
These clients trust our service to the extent they choose not to spend
time on site. Other clients, many retired, choose to take a "hands
on" approach to managing their woodlots. Up-to-date files and
forest management plans document a woodlot's activities and describes
future treatments which can help minimize taxes.
We would enjoy discussing and
assessing the potential of any woodlot within our service areas (Pictou,
Antigonish and Guysborough Counties). Next Generation can provide
information regarding tax incentives and available silviculture funding
for woodlot management applications.
