Our operations in New Brunswick, Maine, and Nova Scotia are rooted in an abundance of forest lands, meaning the communities in our region are some of the most forest-dependent in North America. As the second largest private timberland owner in North America, JDI owns and manages 1.3 million hectares (3.2 million acres) of Freehold timberland and manages 1.1 million hectares (2.6 million acres) of government-owned Crown land in New Brunswick. To support these communities, we have a 25-year evergreen forest management and wood supply agreement with the province of New Brunswick and receive additional wood supply from other Crown lands with long-term tenure associated with our manufacturing operations as well as woodlot owners.
