At Haliburton Forest, we are proud of our involvement in the timber industry, and we are happy to share our knowledge about the land and wood processing with the public. Accordingly, we are able to offer tours of our forestry operations and of the sawmill.

As an extension of its forest, all products generated at the Haliburton Forest sawmill are certified by the internationally recognized Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) as using only timber from our sustainable forestry operations, a designation rarely achieved on this continent. This assures customers that the highest level of environmental and social care is being taken in the generation of all wood products at Haliburton Forest.

Sawmill tours run every Thursday throughout the summer in July and August. Tours start at 1:00 pm. A minimum of 6 participants is required. Please also give us at least 5 days notice if you are interested in this tour.

** For 2021 we are happy to offer a modified tour during the April Spring Break (March Break) on Monday, April 12, Wednesday, April 14, and Friday April 16 from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
