Investment & Innovation
AV Group NB leads by example in managing two Crown land licenses in New Brunswick. We work with the Department of Energy and Resource Development to meet Management plan objectives such as social, environmental, biological, water quality, and wildlife habitat which are set out by the Crown.
The forests we manage are economic drivers for the local and provincial economy, supplying renewable products to 33 different users ranging from high quality hardwood veneer and pine Logs to low grade pulpwood products for the pulp and paper mills in the province.
