Feronia Forests is unique among timberland management organizations insofar as it implements a Sustainable Full Forestry™ strategy, i.e. it creatively monetizes the numerous assets that can be derived from the forest’s ecosystems while strategically postponing the harvesting of its trees & maximizing their economic value. Feronia extracts sap from maple trees for the production of maple water (Vertical Water) and maple syrup (Mission:Maple); and hosts on its properties renewable energy facilities. Eventually, Feronia will generate revenues from conservation easements and carbon sequestration, since our forests are located in highly environmentally-sensitive areas.

Ramblewild is Feronia’s main vehicle to monetize the recreational potential of our forests: visitors meander from tree to tree at various heights through a pristine hemlock forest. The trails are designed to have a profound impact on visitors’ self-confidence and happiness. Aerial parks are a new outdoor activity in and amongst the trees that offer excitement, challenge, and personal growth for adventurists and for the entire family.
