About me

Location Nova Scotia, Canada
Introduction Patricia Amero, Registered Professional Forester, and Sandy Hyde, Forest Technician, are Picea Forestry Consulting. We specialize in helping Nova Scotia landowners who want to practice uneven-aged management on their woodlots. Since it was founded in 2001, Picea has written management plans for woodlots located all over Nova Scotia, from Yarmouth to Inverness. Especially noteworthy are plans for the Antrim demonstration woodlot and the late Dr. Wilfred Creighton's woodlot in Middle Musquodoboit before and after Hurricane Juan. Three woodlot owners we work with have won provincial Woodlot Owner of the Year, and Picea has received awards twice at WOYA events. We also have worked closely with the Association for Sustainable Forestry to help woodlot owners and forestry contractors access funding under the provincial Category 7 Quality Improvement Treatment Program.
