​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Celebrating Our Roots: 100 Years of Simcoe County Forest​

​​

2022 marks a momentous milestone for our County Forest, as this year we celebrate our Centennial​​. Throughout 2022, the County of Simcoe ​will celebrate 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 fo​rest, now spanning more than 33,000 acres across more than 150 properties.

For more information on the County's Forestry program, visit simcoe.ca/dpt/fbl.
