April 21, 2017 – The 2017 Canadian Woodlands Forum (CWF) Spring Meeting and 98th annual general meeting took place April 12 and 13 at the Delta Beausejour in Moncton, N.B.

The event was a collaboration between the CWF, FPInnovations and the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre.

Editor Andrew Snook was on location. He caught up with Peter Robichaud, executive director of the Canadian Woodlands Forum.

“It’s a very important event for the association. We have unprecedented registration with a strong focus on the harvesting, the trucking and the forest management themes,” Robichaud said.

Total registration for the event reached 385 members of the fibre supply chain from across Canada and the U.S., the CWF calling it a "record attendance."

There were 42 speakers present from the forestry industry.

In addition, a total of $8,500 was raised for the region’s children’s hospital foundations through the Log-A-Load for Kids Canada program, according to the CWF.

“One fundamental thing that we really focused on working with our members is to promote the meeting, promote the opportunity to come together to share practices and new technologies and innovation,” Robichaud added.

The Canadian Woodlands Forum is a membership-based not-for-profit organization focused on improving the efficiency of woodlands operations and supporting sustainable forest management practices.
