Northumberland County Forest

Forest Services is responsible for managing approximately 2,225 hectares (5,500 acres) of mainly forested land, known as the Northumberland County Forest.

The County Forest offers residents and visitors a place to appreciate plants and wildlife while preserving our ecosystems and providing many ecological benefits to Northumberland County. With a 118 km trail network, there are many opportunities for recreation as well as hunting. Forest Services also manages annual timber harvesting in the forest, as well as invasive species, weed and forest conservation (tree) by-law enforcement.
