County Forests

SDG County Forests

There are over 9,000 acres of County owned forest and wetlands in SDG. Our County forests (PDF) are open to public use and enjoyment. Many properties host trails, hunting, trapping, and other recreational uses. You can also find other public forest properties on the South Nation public portal.

The County Forests are managed in partnership with agencies such as South Nation Conservation, local ATV and snowmobile clubs, and organizations like the Friends of the Summerstown Trails. Our management plan includes sustainable timber harvests to improve forest health, encourage wildlife habitat, and generate revenue for forest management opportunities. Our forests are managed according to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification.

The following were prepared as part of the County's FSC certification:
