As a follow up to the Small Forest Tenure Capacity Building in the Kootenay Boundary research report released in June 2022, two new reports have been released.  NADB was proud to work with the committee to advise and deliver these reports.

The first, The Feasibility of an Online Log and Lumber Exchange in the Kootenay Boundaryexplores the feasibility of using an online log and lumber exchange to facilitate and stabilize sales of logs, lumber and wood products.  It can be found at the link below.

The second, Small Tenure Holders and Small Wood Manufacturers Working Together: A Study of Joining Forces to Add Value in the Kootenay Boundary explores cooperative business relationships between small tenure holders and small wood manufacturers.  It can be found at the link below.

We are grateful to those who have funded this project to date: Wood Product Development Council (WPDC), Nakusp and Area Community Forest, Regional District of Central Kootenay-Area K, and Bell Lumber and Pole Canada. The volunteer steering committee, led by Woodlot owners Brent Petrick and Hugh Watt, continues to provide leadership.
