Nova Scotia may claim a small percentage of the Canadian forest products industry, but its unique land base means it has one of the highest provincial percentage of woodlot owners. Rough estimates say there are upwards of 30,000 privately owned woodlots in Nova Scotia, and each one with a different set of interests and needs. Greg Watson is the general manager of North Nova Forest Owners Co-operative – one of a few privately run co-operatives in the province that bridge the gap between forest owners, logging contractors and sawmills.
