Temagami is home to the world’s largest old-growth red and white pine forests. For over 20 years, FOT has been advocating for improved forest management in the Temagami area.

  • Larger buffers on canoe routes and portages
  • Less clearcutting next to provincial parks
  • Improved old-growth forest conservation
  • Decommissioning unused forest access roads

Our efforts have made a real difference in these areas:

  • Won a substantial no-cut zone around Spirit Rock, northeast of Obabika Lake
  • Shut down proposal to open Wolf Lake Forest Reserve to logging
  • Stopped new bridge across last roadless section of Sturgeon River – Twice
  • Negotiated better protection for Makobe River and Sturgeon River parks
  • Established buffers on Willow Island Creek canoe route, among others
