What are the impacts on the wood supply if we do nothing?

In an uncontrolled moderate to severe outbreak, the estimated losses in wood supply in the Atlantic region are predicted to be between 2.4 million and 3.3 million cubic metres of wood per year over the next 30 years. A detailed wood supply analysis for alternative future scenarios for New Brunswick is presented in Hennigar et al. 2013.
