2000 Acres

Stewarding PEI Provincial Public Land

On December 13, 2005, Minister of Environment, Energy and Forestry Jamie Ballem announced that the Province has reached an agreement with the Environmental Coalition of Prince Edward Island to manage 800 hectares of public forest land (PFL) in southeastern PEI. Under the 10-year lease agreement, the Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project in Orwell will use the lands to demonstrate sustainable forest management and restoration of our native Acadian woodlands.


Restore an Acre

In an effort to improve the health of our forests and create a model for environmental stewardship, Macphail Woods is launching the Restore an Acre initiative.

You can mail a cheque (payable to Macphail Woods) to ECOPEI, 81 Prince St. , Charlottetown, PEI , C1A 4R3 or donate online through CanadaHelps.

All donations will be used in the restoration of a 220-acre Public Forest on the Selkirk Road (Route #23) in Valley, part of the 2,000 acres we are managing for the provincial government.

Public Land Stewardship – 2000 acres

Here you will find information on the Provincial public forest land (PFL) that we are currently stewarding. As we are able, we are adding each management plan from each property complete with our current assessment of the forest, our suggestions and planning for its future, as well as plants lists, animal lists, and other vital information about the property.

As we develop and restore these properties, we will also be using sustainable harvest practices to extract lumber, fuelwood, and other items all while improving the diversity and vitality of these woods. These management plans will give you a glimpse onto  properties throughout PEI where someday your cutting boards, beds, firewood and much more might be harvested from.
