One Year Later; Looking Ahead
March 2nd , 2021

The closure of the Northern Pulp Kraft Mill in January 2020 eliminated the primary market for sawmill residuals and pulpwood in Nova Scotia. The impacts from the closure are still being felt by the forest sector across the Maritimes. Major changes in fibre flows, downsizing of the harvest and trucking capacity, loss of a profitable market for sawmill chips, loss of stumpage values for landowners, high- grading forest stands to produce sawlogs for a booming lumber market, and significantly reduced revenues across the entire fiber supply chain.

So, what does the situation look like one year later?

Join us on March 2nd to hear about the direct impacts on the forest industry, and ongoing efforts by industry and government in pursuing viable solutions for the short to medium term in order to sustain a viable and healthy forest sector.
