Forests, Fish and Wildlife
Natural Island Christmas trees are a beautiful and safe part of the holiday season. Locally produced trees are environmentally friendly and provide income and employment in many rural communities. Island growers produce fresh, fragrant trees and wreaths suited to your holiday festivities and activities.
The Extended Angling Season allows anglers to lengthen their annual fishing season. For more information on the requirements and registration process visit:
The 2015-16 Hunting and Trapping Summary is now available on-line and at license vendors, Access PEI offices and Forests, Fish and Wildlife Division offices across the province.
Untreated firewood, even small bundles, can quickly move harmful forest insects and disease pests from one region to another. This summer, please ask your friends, relatives and visitors from away to leave their firewood home and buy some when they get here.
Over the last few years, many Island farmers have planted trees to create hedgerows along fields and wind breaks around their homes and buildings to reduce heating costs and noise. The Shelterbelt/Buffer Zone planting program is accepting applications for the 2016 planting season.
