Seymour speaks with Chronicle Herald about Nova Scotia forestry industry

Robert Seymour, the Curtis Hutchins Emeritus Professor in the School of Forest Resources, talked with The Chronicle Herald about the future of Nova Scotia’s forest industry. He suggested converting public facilities to run on wood pellets or a similar product. Pellets can be made from hardwood or softwood, are dried, and burn at around 80% efficiency. “They’ve become a very common thing here in the United States – there’s hundreds of them in Vermont alone,” he said in the article.
