Market Update

Market update for this week can be found here. 

SNB Board Staff are beginning to seek volume estimates from producers for the various products you plan to ship for the upcoming season. 

These volume estimates are very helpful, as we begin to communicate and enter into negotiations with mills for new Board contracts/purchase agreements for this upcoming year.

Silviculture Season 

Silviculture season is now underway.  Woodlot owners who would like advice on silviculture or forest management options please contact the office (506) 433-9866.   

SNB has once again received surplus seedlings from the Kingsclear Nursery outside Fredericton.  Owners who would like "Free" white spruce seedlings, please contact the office (506) 433-9866 or stop by the office Monday-Friday 8am-5pm to pick-up. 

As you can see, these seedlings are a little short, but they would make a great weekend project to fill in some open areas on the woodlot.
