The Great Northern Timber Group of Companies (GNT) is proud to announce that we are now a producer of high-quality wood pellets. GNT recently acquired, refurbished and restarted a pellet mill located in Upper Musquodoboit Nova Scotia. Our new pellet operations will be under the company name of Great Northern Pellets. Please stay tuned as we will soon provide more information on our production, intended specification and plans for our pellet operations.’
We provide a variety of services to both large industrial and smaller private landowners to support the planning and management of standing timber.
At the outset, we can conduct an inventory assessment. From there, we develop short term, single season plans, medium range plans, or longer term forestry plans.
We manage small and large land ownerships as well as Nova Scotia Crown land.
Planning – Management plans are completed using the most recent technology such as GPS, GIS, and drone, and our plans highlight specific landowner objectives.
Harvesting – A range of harvest techniques are used to match the specific property landscape and forest type.
Silviculture – Post harvest followup to determine required silviculture which promotes optimum growth of the next forest crop.
