The voice of NB's private woodlot owners
What we can do for you
As a member, you receive regular updates and monthly newsletters that include notices of events, educational opportunities, projects, and updates on all matters concerning private woodlot owners in New Brunswick. And member deals too!
The NBFWO advocates on behalf of all private woodlot owners. We work with all levels of government, the NB Forest Products Marketing Boards, and other like-minded organizations for the promotion and protection of the interests and rights of private forest owners.
We are a dynamic group of family-owned forest owners that promote sustainably managed private forest resources, which contribute to the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of rural communities across New Brunswick.
As a member-based not-for-profit, new members are welcome; any private woodlot owner, company or organization is eligible to be a member of the NBFWO.
What members say......
" I would say one of the main reasons I am a member is that I really like receiving the monthly news letter. It really is a way for woodlot owners to keep up to date on what is going on with industry, the government and our Marketing boards. The federation has been around a long time and has a relationship with all stake holders in forestry that would be very hard to replace."
"My interest is to become more knowledgeable about the Forest Industry, My goal is to maximize profit for my woodlots by getting more knowledge of how to maintain a woodlot by keeping wildlife at max, maintain a friendly ecosystem, and helping with climate change at the same time"
"The current Crown Lands and Forests Act was designed in the day when wood supply for mills was the overriding concern. Since then, other legitimate uses of our forests have increased in value, e.g. recreation, conservation, diversity, NTFP, carbon sequestration. These uses fall outside the Marketing Board’s mandate. We need an organization which has a broader scope of interests. These are a couple of reasons for supporting the NBFWO."
"I joined because I want to support an organization that advocates for independent woodlot owners. I am interested in the information and programs related to the long term sustainability of woodlots through natural diversity within the woodlot as opposed to monoculture planting."
As a provincial organisation, we recognise that the work of the New Brunswick Federation of Woodlot Owners takes place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Wabanaki.
