The North Shore Forest Products Marketing Board is an organization founded to give all the private woodlot owners bargaining power in negotiations, to sell his/her wood at the best possible price to all available markets and to encourage good woodlot management practices by offering forestry services.

We are located at 2807 Miramichi avenue, Bathurst, NB and we are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. 

First step would be to contact the North Shore Forest Products Marketing Board to know what the wood markets are at the mills. 

Next would be to have a field visit with one of our Forest Technicians to get advice for the best management practices on your woodlot.

It is very important to keep a log book of the loads in your yard, or a cross reference system for your transportation certificate numbers. You must always keep a copy of your transport certificates as proof of wood travel when asked by the authority.

Make sure that the only white sheets in your books are for cancelled loads or unused certificates. These white sheets serve as proof for the wood recipients.

Names and addresses of the recipients for fire wood must be clearly indicated on the certificates. Dates and times must also be indicated clearly for all deliveries.

All transport certificate books must be kept outside of the cabin.

Make sure to leave a transportation certificate sheet with all wood deliveries even for transfers and fire wood.

To help you fill out the TC's, please refer to the examples below and provide information in checked off areas.

All books must be returned to the Board by April 15th of the following year.

If you take the example table for poplar. (see attachment)

Volume in M3 divided by 2.26 (See table section poplar M3 up to cord) = total in cords.

If we have 30.75 M3 divided by the 2.26 = 13.6062 cd.

For the price, multiply ex: if it is $ 47.27 M3 x 2.26 = $ 106.83 per cord.

So for 13.61 cord x $ 106.83 cd = $ 1 453.55.

We can also verify if it is correct;

We take the 30.75 M3 x $ 47.27M3 = $ 1 453.55.

1 cord 8’ = 4h x 4w x 8 Long. = 128 ft³

1 cord 9’ = 3.77h x 3.77w x 9Long. = 128 ft³
