    Adopt A Patch: Five Points Forest


    About Five Points Forest

    Five Points Forest was donated to the Thames Talbot Land Trust in 2009 by Al and Lilianne Driedger, who wanted to protect the natural features of the land in perpetuity.

    Location Map of Five Points Forest

    The 29-ha (73-acre) property lies on a gently rolling moraine just south of the south branch of the Thames River between Putnam and Ingersoll, adjacent to other woodland patches.

    Five Points Forest consists of mixed coniferous-deciduous upland forest and forest swamp, including Provincially Significant Wetland.

    Its low-lying areas were farmed until the 1940s and 1950s and then abandoned. These areas have reforested naturally but also include some older coniferous plantings including White Pine, Scotch Pine and Larch.

    Your Role

    Individuals or groups of people, nature clubs, schools and other organizations can adopt one or more 10m x 10m patches within the forest.

    Stewardship of your patch can include:

    • Garlic mustard pulling in the spring and summer months;
    • Other invasive species removal;
    • Litter clean-up along trails;
    • Tree and shrub planting;
    • Observation and reporting of hazards.
