Finding a better way

Continuous investment in healthy forests

Our forests and forest products operations are an integrated and interdependent value chain that is strengthened by the growth of two vital resources - our people and the trees that sustain our operations. 

Healthy forests are the first link.  Sawmills provide chips to pulp and paper mills. Bark is used as a vital green source of energy.  Pulp mills provide the raw material for paper making.   It is very important that every link in the value chain be healthy and competitive in the global marketplace.

This means an ongoing investment in trees, in skilled people and the best technology JDI is committed to those investments. In New Brunswick, we invest more than double the North American industry average
