The City of North Bay is within the forest management unit known as the “Nipissing Forest”. The Forest extends over 11,932 kmfrom which 400,000 cubic metres of wood is harvested annually and is delivered to more than 20 forest resource processing facilities in the region. Wood from the Nipissing Forest is processed into pulp, paper, veneer, dimensional lumber, oriented strand board (OSB), fuelwood, pallets and specialty products.
