    Private woodlands have long played an important role in the supply of forest products and environmental benefits throughout the region. The woodlands were originally considered by European settlers to be obstacles to the more important goals of human settlement and agriculture. As recently as the first quarter of this century, for example, forest land grants were given to returning war veterans in northern Ontario. Private ownership did not always lead to sound management. Add to that the uncertainty about harvest on public lands and the increasing demand for growth and it is clear why significant attention has been drawn to private lands in this region.
