The current Woodlands Conservation Bylaw was adopted by Council 2004 to support responsible forestry management practices and environmental stewardship of woodland areas within the County.

The Woodlands Conservation Bylaw is vital because it helps Oxford County to sustain the community’s environmental and natural heritage resources. Additionally, the bylaw helps to conserve and improve woodlands through good forestry practices, while protecting the social, economic and environmental value of woodlands. The bylaw also helps the County to enhance biodiversity and forest resilience that will allow the community to adapt to climate change and other environmental threats to forest health.

The public meetings on November 22, November 24 and December 1, 2016 are the next step in gathering feedback on the updated draft bylaw, with additional opportunities for public input available online at
