A Message from Kim Allen, Executive Director, Forest NB
Challenge is a catalyst for change and growth, and we are living in challenging times.
Forestry and forest products are integral to the economic, social, and environmental well-being of New Brunswickers. Just as integral are the myriad values we collectively invest in our forests – aesthetic, spiritual, recreational, conservational, and economic. All these values are important, and all are part of the fabric of who we are.
The industry has and will continue to support New Brunswickers and their values because they are our values too – we too are people who live here, play here, thrive here. Together we will manage these valuable resources sustainably, achieve climate solutions, strengthen communities, maintain biodiversity, and build equity; we will promote the benefits of sustainable forest management to achieve all of these.
I look forward to working with the people who value our forests, both within and outside of the industry, as we rise to the challenge of ensuring that our forests continue to provide for us and remain forests for future generations.
Together we will grow.
Together we are Growing a Future for our Communities Through Renewable Forests.
