Land’escapes has recently purchased the 65,000+ acres formerly owned by The ForestLand Group, commonly referred to as the Domtar Lands. This property is large, and there have been numerous groups and individuals using the land historically as well as thousands of neighbours. We’re looking forward to getting to know everyone in due time, but given the multitude of people connected in some way to this land, this could take awhile.
We have set up this page as a resource to find more information about us and our plans for the property.
Leases, permits and agreements.
We hope to be quiet, easy neighbours. We’re shutting down most logging operations and running much quieter outdoor recreation and education activities. Chances are very good that most of our community members and neighbours have not been impacted by previous activities, and they have not been using the land.
If you have been previously accessing the land, you may notice that we are taking some security measures to end public access. In order for us to meet our conservation and restoration goals, we will need to take measures to prevent trespassing. While we know that most users were probably acting respectfully on the property, with open access to the public it becomes difficult to maintain wild spaces and hold those who do cause damages accountable. Therefore we will no longer allow any public access. If you want to use the property, we urge you to contact us and learn about some options, including the programs we have offered on our website.
