Since Council approval of the Regional Forest Management Plan in 2006, detailed Operating Management Plans for the respective Regional Forests and other Regionally-owned woodlands have been prepared, approved by Council, and implemented. By mid-2012, a major forest management project was completed in the Doon Regional Forest in collaboration with the Waterloo Stewardship Network. In the past months, the Operating Management Plans for the Macton, Townline, and Hilborn Regional Forests were reviewed by Ecological and Environmental Advisory Committee (E.E.A.C.) and approved by Council for implementation over the coming months. Recently, an additional Plan was approved and another is currently under review by the Ecological and Environmental Advisory Committee. This work is in addition to the ongoing maintenance of the Regional Forests which entails the removal of hazard trees and routine trail maintenance.
