Services

Product / Service / Licensing

Product Name: Research and Development
BioForest has a strong research and development capability and has worked with many clients to develop new, more effective pest management tools such as Decision Support Systems. We have developed the EcoJect® System (US Patent 7,114,289 / EPA Registration 082996-CAN-001), a tree injection system for the application of systemic pesticides into high value trees. BioForest is a unique forest consulting company working hard to ensure healthy forests for today and tomorrow.

Service Name: Forest Health Management
BioForest Technologies provides critical data gathering and analysis services essential for effective forest health management to a regional, national and international clientele. Each year, insects and diseases cause more damage to forests than wildfire. While not as dramatic as fire, trees attacked by insects and diseases can be affected in many ways including growth loss, top damage or mortality, crown dieback, increased susceptibility to secondary pest attack, structural degradation, and/or whole tree mortality. BioForest Technologies works with clients to manage pests before, during, and after serious attacks, to minimize the effects of pest outbreaks. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff will work with clients to design effective pest management programs for commercial forests, woodlots, cottage properties and everything in between. We are not a spray company and we pride ourselves in providing our clients with an objective assessment of each situation.

Service Name: Training and Information Services
BioForest has designed, coordinated and delivered workshops, training sessions, and conferences for a variety of clients. Examples of our intensive, custom designed workshops include:

* Introduction to Forest Management (Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development)
* Tree Seedling Health Management for Reforestation Nurseries (British Columbia Ministry of Forests)
* Forest Health Course (J.D. Irving and E.B. Eddy)
* Forest Management Planning (Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources)
* Spruce Budworm Decision Support System Workshop and Training (Saskatchewan Environment)
* Pesticide Licensing Course (Ontario)

BioForest has provided clients with a variety of information services including in depth literature reviews, annotated bibliographies and discussion papers for specific topics. For example, BioForest authored Best Management Practices Guidelines for Forest Stands Damaged by the 1998 Ice Storm in Eastern Ontario and A Manual for Aerial Spraying in Ontario's Crown Forests for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.
