From its beginnings during the square timber era in the 1800’s, forest management on Crown lands has evolved from that of a system with very little planning into the modern forest management planning system of today which accounts for the multiple values that we as Ontarian’s have come to expect from our Crown forests.

Annual Work Schedules

Annual work schedules (AWS) are completed for each implementation year of a forest management plan. Therefore, since there are ten-years of operations in an approved FMP, there are ten AWS’ prepared for that period. The AWS identifies operations that were previously planned and approved in the forest management plan, and are scheduled for implementation during the year.

  • Renewal (site preparation, planting & seeding) & Maintenance (tending) areas
  • Primary and branch road construction

Each annual work schedule is in place for a one-year period lasting from April 1st to March 31st. Annual work schedules are found online on MNR’s website at:
