CBPP and NSLFFPA are working on developing a network of small wood yards on Cape Breton. The yards, owned and operated by either the Partnership or woodlot owners, would receive wood from woodlot owners and contractors, store and process as appropriate, and try to ensure the wood gets the highest possible value for the seller. The network would also act to promote value adding opportunities for woodlot owners and forest product businesses.
We are very excited about the project, and feel that it can play an important role in supporting woodlot owners and improving the outlook for the forest industry in general on Cape Breton.
Further information on the project is available here.
CBPP will be holding a series of meetings to discuss the project, gauge interest and get feedback and ideas for the project.
Port Hawkesbury Civic Center (Arts and Crafts room) June 15, 7pm
Baddeck Firehall, June 16, 7pm
Inverness Firehall June 22, 7pm
We will also be hosting a discussion as part of the BLBRA AGM, June 18 at the Northside East Bay Firehall.
