Centre de valorisation du bois urbain
Technical assistance loan
Presentation of the enterprise
A sorting and processing centre for pulp generated from urban forests, the CVBU can potentially recover tens of thousands of trees. The CVBU also prioritizes a rigorous treatment process to limit the spread of parasites and illness to other regions in Québec.
“What if we could come up with a collective response to the challenge posed by the emerald ash borer? And what if we could turn this situation into a sustainable opportunity to manage the urban forest? These are the questions at the origin of the Centre de valorisation du bois urbain (CVBU) project.”
Patrick Piché, promoter
“The technical assistance loan gave us impetus. We were able to grasp the scope of the project in clear and realistic terms. This type of help is essential for any new collective project.”
