Agroforestry & Woodlot Extension Society


The Agroforestry & Woodlot Extension Society's (AWES) mission is to increase the awareness of the economic, social and environmental values of agroforestry and woodlots in the agricultural landscape.

AWES promotes responsible agroforestry and woodlot management by providing support and extension services to landowners, land stewards and others who influence land-use practices.
