The next Forest Industry Lecture Series event features Chris Ward, the Assistant Deputy Minister Forestry Division for the Government of New Brunswick.

New Brunswick has an unwavering commitment to several  forest management fundamentals, including precise forest inventories, substantial investments in silviculture, comprehensive long-term planning, and effective forest protection measures. The dedicated adherence to these fundamentals over the past four decades is now showing positive outcomes. It has resulted in possibilities to increase wood supply while concurrently advancing conservation efforts on public lands. This presentation outlines the province’s forest management history spanning the last 45 years, highlighting the challenges overcome, opportunities seized, and the upcoming steps in New Brunswick aimed at fostering a healthy and resilient forest and forest sector.

A virtual link to join the lecture will be available.
