Become a Friend of the Forest!

Be a part of something big and join us in making healthy Island forests a reality!

Since 1991, we’ve been showcasing stewardship and sustainability. Macphail Woods is growing forests that will benefit Islanders for generations to come – improving wildlife habitat, restoring biodiversity, and storing carbon to help combat climate change.

Through ecological restoration, sustainable harvesting, and environmental education, we are bringing back the native Acadian forest one plant and one property at a time.

Join us in propagating native plant species, promoting ecologically sound forest practices and educating people throughout the Atlantic region.


Healthy forests benefit everyone, as well as the flora and fauna that are so important to us all.
