Community Forestry

Supporting community-based forestry in New Brunswick

Protecting forest ecosystems and growing local economies.

Community forestry is a model wherein community members have access to forest resources in their area and make decisions on how forests within or adjacent to community boundaries are managed. Because communities and forests are diverse and complex, many models of community forests exist to reflect local values and principles.


Community forests keep the wealth derived from local forest resources in the community. Working community forests in Canada and around the world demonstrate that community forests have the potential to diversify local economies, restore and protect forest ecosystems.
