A Message from Mike Legere, Executive Director, Forest NB
In my role as Executive Director of Forest NB it is my distinct pleasure of meeting and working with the many people whose daily lives are touched by the Forests of New Brunswick. For generations, New Brunswick’s Forests have provided for the people who live, work and play here.
The people of New Brunswick have a special relationship with the Forest. It has shaped the very fabric of our communities; it influences where we live, the work we do and how we spend our leisure time with families and friends. Forestry contributes more to the province’s economy than any other manufacturing or service sector. It supports over 20,000 jobs and through timber royalties and tax revenues, contributes to the public services we have come to expect and rely on. Forests also provide us with great natural and recreational benefits that we assure for future generations with well managed woodlands and protected natural areas.
So I invite you to browse through our site, subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media. We like to hear from our most important client – you, the people of New Brunswick.
Together we are Growing a Future for our Communities Through Renewable Forests.
