Benefitting future generations both environmentally and economically by practicing sustainable forestry on Crown land in Nova Scotia.
0.6% of Nova Scotia’s forests are harvested each year. More of our forests are lost each year due to natural mortality than to harvesting.
Canadians are using approximately 200 kilograms of paper products per person per year.
The forest sector generates more than $2 billion each year into Nova Scotia’s economy.
At WestFor we strive to find the midway point of economy and environment. Forestry generates 2 billion dollars into Nova Scotia’s economy each year and on crown land we only harvest 0.6% of the forest annually!
We support rural communities that rely heavily on forestry. The forestry industry in the province of Nova Scotia directly employs 6,100 people and indirectly employees 5,400 people which in total helps those 11,500 individuals and their loved ones.
Whether it’s the paper you send your office memos out on, the toilet paper you stock your bathrooms with, or the building you are in, your business needs forestry!
