Shaping Our Future Videos
Tour and advisory session
Jan. 12, 2010
In the midst of the uncertainty and worry about the future of the forest industry over the last few years, several organizations in New Brunswick took steps to change how they operate in order to create new economic opportunities to shape their futures.
With a pressing need for new markets, woodlot owners in the Fredericton/Nashwaak Valley area decided to move into the processing sector. York-Sunbury-Carleton Wood Marketing Board bought a sawmill, while a group of woodlot owners in the Nashwaak River valley came together, formed a co-operative and built a pellet plant which is now in operation and SNB Wood Co-op is offering innovative services to its members.
On Jan. 12, 2010, representatives from the woodlot sector around N.B. gathered in Taymouth for Shaping Our Futures, a tour and advisory forum organized by Fundy Model Forest. (Agenda)
