Celebrating Our Roots: 100 Years of Simcoe County Forest
2022 marked a momentous milestone for our County Forest, as we commemorated our Centennial. Throughout 2022, the County of Simcoe celebrated the growth of the Simcoe County Forest over the past 100 years.
The County was the first jurisdiction in Ontario to enter into the 'Agreement Forest' program in 1922 and has invested in tree planting, management practices and property acquisitions to become Ontario's largest municipally-owned forest, now spanning more than 33,000 acres across more than 150 properties.
