ECANUSA (Eastern Canada and USA) is an international forestry conference, held every two years, which alternates between Maine, New-Brunswick and Quebec. As part of its 25th anniversary celebrations, the Université de Moncton, Campus d'Edmundston (UMCE), École de foresterie (FdeF), has agreed to host the next ECANUSA, to be held October 14 to 16, 2010.

The objectives of this biennial conference are to :
  • Promote cross-border communication concerning current forest management and forest research issues, and innovation in the forest sector;
  • Provide a permanent forum for information sharing between Canadian and US forest managers and researchers;
  • Provide an opportunity for university students working on forest-related topics, to present their research results, meet researchers and other students working on similar projects, and become informed regarding the full suite of forestry issues relevant to this region;
  • Foster the establishment of closer ties between researchers, students and forest practitioners on both sides of the border as we search for solutions to our common forestry challenges.

ECANUSA conferences generally attract between 120 and 160 participants (researchers, students, practitioners), with around fifty oral presentations, as well as poster presentations. The conference lasts two days with a half-day plenary session, followed by a day of technical sessions (2 or 3 held concurrently) and a half-day field tour.
