Conservation group purchases rare hardwood forests north of Woodstock, N.B.

WOODSTOCK, N.B. - A national conservation group is purchasing two properties that will preserve rare hardwood forest in northern New Brunswick.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada said Tuesday it has bought 18 hectares in the Meduxnekeag Watershed Natural Area north of Woodstock.

The conservancy says in a news release that the first property, located near Jackson Falls, includes flood plain forest and endangered butternut trees.

The second property contains white ash, basswood, ironwood and butternut trees.

The Appalachian hardwood forest being preserved covers only one per cent of its original range in the province.

Environment Canada contributed about $133,000 towards the purchases of the two pieces of land.
