You don’t need to own a chain saw to become a member of the Woodlot Association of Manitoba, but you do need to appreciate and respect the economic, social and environmental benefits of Manitoba’s privately owned woodlots and family forests. Whether you own a thousand hectares of land forested by spruce, bur oak, poplars and saskatoons or live in a Winnipeg high-rise with a finicky Ficus benjamina, you can become a member of WAM.

Membership benefits:

  • A bi-monthly newsletter, The Manitoba Woodlot, with up-to-date information on up-coming events, current woodlot and private forestry issues, and insight into how woodlot owners manage their forests.
  • Free e-Bulletin “classified ads” for members
  • e-Bulletin distribution of notices of interest to WAM members.
  • Member rates for special events.
  • Opportunities to participate in field days and demonstrations, workshops, safety courses and other events related to woodlot management.
  • Tax-deductible membership if you operate a commercial woodlot.
  • The opportunity to become involved in supporting and nurturing Manitoba’s private forests.

Membership in WAM is open to individuals and businesses. Annual memberships run from April 1 to March 31, with fees for new members prorated throughout the year.
