The fall months are brush cutting (cedar, balsam fir) season. Before cutting brush on CP held lands, which are private, you must get permission from the CP holder. If you are not sure who is the landholder of an area where you plan to cut brush, the Lands Department would be happy to assist.
When cutting, please practice responsible harvesting by not slashing, stripping or cutting down trees, or overharvesting in one area. Stay mindful and help us and future generations by maintaining a sustainable harvest of these tree boughs for medicine and brush.
If you have any further questions, please call the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation Lands Department at 519-534-1689.
