Landowners, Stora Enso reach deal on wood prices

[Canada] Landowners who sell pulpwood to paper giant Stora Enso Port Hawkesbury ratified a deal with the mill Sunday that will bring the highest wood prices in the Maritimes. Although the 2,000-member group took a 10 per cent price cut, it will still be paid almost double what landowners in western Nova Scotia and New Brunswick receive, he said. The price per cord will allow landowners to pay for certification plans and audits, new standards that the Forest Stewardship Council requires. “Stora Enso customers are demanding woodland certification,” Mr. Brown said.
