Forestry and Agrifoods
There are currently approximately 20 farms in the province that produce predominately Balsam Fir. It is a developing industry with the majority of sites on cutovers. There are many opportunities for this industry because of the abundance of areas containing Balsam Fir, the limited capital investment that is required, the positive market opportunities and it provides supplementary income on farms.
The challenges in the christmas tree industry in the province is the lack of technical expertise, the problem of Fir & Pine insect pests, and moose browsing damage.
