Non-timber forest bioproducts research

The only non-timber products research centre in Atlantic Canada

We are home to NTFP research in:

  • cultivation of fast-growing species for pellet production (various willow clones)
  • selection and propagation of elite cultivars of high-value crops (Rhodiola)
  • Current and future strategy centers around studies on multi-purpose, multiple-product NTFP species (e.g. larch, willow, hemp) and a diversified portfolio of NTFPs.
