Wood Producers Association
"Dedicated to Effective Woodlot Management"
The Carleton-Victoria Wood Producers Association was established in 1975 by a group of concerned woodlot owners, logging contractors and truckers who were seeking to work together to obtain fair access and treatment in the forest products market.
In 1978, the Association decided to hold a plebiscite to form the Carleton-Victoria Forest Products Marketing Board. The Marketing Board concept would give more legislated authority and structure for the group to carry out negotiations with the various forest industries and form contracts for the sale of primary forest products.
Since their incorporation, the Board and Association have developed many services targeted towards woodlot owners, logging contractors, and truckers in the Carleton and Victoria counties area of New Brunswick in order to assist with the effective forest management on private woodlots in the two counties.
