About Athol

Athol Forestry is located just outside of Amherst heading towards Fort Lawrence on Highway 2. Along with 4 full time staff we subcontract over $500,000 worth of work each year to local contractors in Cumberland County. Located at our office is a retail store offering forestry and safety supplies, culverts and accessories as well as boots and work wear clothing.

Our Beginnings

Over 35 years ago, a small group of local woodlot owners recognized that by working together they were able to accomplish much more together than they could as individuals. Since that time of meetings around a kitchen table we have grown into a group of more than 250 members whose forestry interests are supported by a dedicated staff of forestry professionals under the direction of a board of directors made up from this membership.

Our mission is to provide and promote unbiased, professional forest management knowledge and services. We strive to combine our member's values with leading best practices in sustainable forestry. As a member of Athol Forestry Cooperative, your values and desired outcomes will be the foundation for the management of your woodlot. Whether your goals are to generate income or improve wildlife habitat, Athol Forestry can help.
