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.

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.
