Solutions for Today’s Woodlands Operations

The Canadian Woodlands Forum (CWF) is the only 'grass-roots' forest industry organization providing a network for forestry contractors, forest product companies, suppliers and 'on-the-ground' forestry personnel.

Our MISSION is to improve the efficiency and profitability of woodlands operations, through an ongoing commitment to fostering communication, providing a means to exchange knowledge of best practices and technology and innovations, and promoting the interests of woodlands professionals and contractors in order to sustain a robust, safe and environmentally responsible wood fiber supply chain.


The Canadian Woodlands Forum (CWF) is one of the few industry organizations committed to helping you by keeping you informed and providing opportunities to communicate and network. If you are a contractor, equipment dealer or manufacturer, a forestry professional employed by the pulp and paper industry, the sawmilling industry, provincial natural resources department or a research organization, and if you want to pursue your professional development goals, the benefits of joining the CWF will help you get started right away.......more

The Future of the
Nova Scotia Forestry Contractor

A Contractor group comprised of Nova Scotia's harvesting, trucking, silviculture and road construction companies have been monitoring and assessing the dramatic impacts of the Northern Pulp mill closure and have compiled their concerns and solutions in a position paper released back in May. The Canadian Woodlands Forum through their High Performance Logging (HPL) program have been assisting the group in providing communication in the form of updates and coordination support to forestry contractors across the province. The position paper and updates provided on this page are for purposes of keeping contractors informed of market developments and issues impacting the future viability of the fiber supply chain.

Canadian Woodlands Forum, the national coordinator of Log A Load For Kids Canada. Since its inception in September 2000, Log-A-Load for Kids Canada has raised over $1.4 million for various children’s hospitals across Canada. None of that would have been possible without the dedicated work of many, many volunteers who have donated time and effort to organized large and small fund-raising events. All of these efforts put together make for a very successful program. Discover how you can get involved  HERE
