In an April 2014 CBC New Brunswick interview, Ken Hardie of the NB Federation of Woodlot Owners said he was concerned that private wood would be shut out of the marketplace - that the extra access to Crown land for industry would mean private woodlot owners might not be able to sell their wood.
And yet, at the time of the interview, Mr Hardie would have been aware that JDI had already shared its purchase plan for 2014-15 with the seven NB Forest Products Marketing Boards, the NB Federation of Woodlot Owners and the Department of Natural Resources. The plan confirms the company wants to buy 740,000m3 of private wood – a 9% increase over what JDI bought last year. Achieving this plan would be biggest purchase volume from private woodlot owners in JDI’s history. So why does JDI need more Crown wood? Why not just buy the extra volume you need from private woodlot owners? You ask. We answer. JustAskJDI.com
