Inscription.

The Lumber Jack represents the exciting role Truro has played in development of forestry in Nova Scotia. Truro has always been, and still is today, a centre of forestry activity. The forest industry continues to be the backbone of the local and provincial economy providing jobs and economic benefit to our society. The industry and our citizens are dependent on the many benefits of sustainable forest management.
