Videos Who We Are.. The Bancroft Area Forest Industry Association BAFIA is an incorporated group of forestry companies ranging from loggers, sawmill operators, foresters, forest technicians, woodlot owners and managers who operate on both crown and private land.
Many of our members are small, family owned businesses with some serving our community for over years.
As a group we gather every month to voice our concerns and develop action plans to confront the issues facing our industry today. Hear forestry expert Ernie Demuth describe what he sees happening out in the forest and study the field guide to find out what to look for.
Commitment to Sustainability Do you have wood products on your property? Do you want to manage your land in a sustainable manner? We believe that sustainable forestry practices are necessary for both the environment and business. Landowners who feel that a member has not met these standards when operating on their property may file a written complaint with the Association. Complaints of malpractice by members will be investigated promptly, either by the Association or by an independent third party named by the Association for this purpose.
A member who has been found to be operating contrary to these standards may be disciplined by the Association.
When operating on private land other than their own, members shall operate only under a signed contract with the registered property owner that, as a minimum, specifies: a.
Where a landowner has waived his right to a contract, the member shall make note of the time, date and circumstances describing the waiver and the names of any witnesses, and keep a record of the event with his other records of the property. Before a contract to cut trees on private land has been signed, members shall suggest as the preferred option the services of a Registered Professional Forester RPF , an associate member of the Ontario Professional Foresters Association or a Tree Marker certified under the Ministry of Natural Resources tree marker training program, to determine what trees may be cut in accordance with good forestry practices.
The cost of these services may be paid by the landowner or factored into the stumpage rates, as determined by the parties involved. Where a landowner has declined the option of professional forestry and tree marking services, the member shall make note of the details of the discussion and the names of any witnesses, and keep a record of the event with his other records of the property. When conducting harvest and related operations, members shall comply with their contract with the landowner, and with all resource and worker safety-related legislation, regulations and municipal by-laws.
Members who are purchasing forest products from suppliers shall endeavor to accept wood meeting the agreed-upon log specs and delivery schedules, but where they are unable to do so for reasons beyond their control, shall advise the supplier accordingly and with as much notice as possible.
