Government of New Brunswick

New Brunswick's public forest is divided into 10 timber licences. Each is leased to a large forest-based company (called a licensee) under a 25-year agreement. Each has an assigned number of sub-licensees. The licensee manages our public forest following strict guidelines set by the Department of Energy and Resource Development. Harvest volumes and royalties are clearly defined. Performance is monitored regularly and evaluated every five years.
