The Nova Scotia Woodlot Owners and Operators Association is an independent organization of woodlot owners and operators achieving prosperity, stewardship, and solidarity through the practice of ecologically, socially, and economically sustainable forestry.

Check out our landowner goals tool below!

A non-profit society, NSWOOA is the oldest independent organization of small forest landowners in Nova Scotia. Founded in 1969, our mission is to support woodlot owners in sustainable forestry through education, demonstration, marketing, and cooperation. 

We encourage you to browse the pages of this website, where you will find many resources and activities of interest to woodland owners and others who care about Nova Scotia’s forests. You can learn more about Acadian Forest restoration and alternatives to clear-cutting on our sustainable forestry page or see good forestry up close at the Otter Ponds Demonstration Forest. If you share our passion for sustainable forestry, you are invited to become a member of NSWOOA. 

For even more information, contact Andy Kekacs, executive director, toll-free at 1-855-NS-WOODS or by email to andy.nswooa@gmail.com.


 New tool for family forest owners

Set your goals for forest ownership, and identify the resources you need to achieve them, by using NSWOOA's new self-assessment tool for small-woodland owners. It's simple, useful, and fun. To begin, click here.

As an incentive to try the goals assessment, every landowner who completes it (and provides contact information) will be entered into a drawing to receive a Husqvarna 550 XPG chainsaw, with a retail value of $810.

The saw was donated by M-C Power Equipment of Truro, mcpowerequip.ca or (902) 895-2400. Lightweight but powerful, this is an excellent saw for family forest owners. We’re grateful to Husqvarna and M-C Power Equipment for supporting good forestry in Nova Scotia!
