Forest Forest

Forest corridors are long stretches of forest that have survived agricultural and urban development and connect the region’s woodland pockets. Usually located in the heart of agricultural lands, these forests were traditionally used as a source of wood, for maple syrup production, for hunting and for hiking. Historically, they have served as hiding places for the Patriotes, settings for sugaring-off parties and places to lay trapping lines. Today they are home to an astonishing variety of plants and animals and enhance the countryside as well as our environment. In light of their importance and fragility, our challenge over the coming years will be to preserve and enrich this natural legacy.
