Julien Moreau has worked in the forest since a very young age. At the age of 12, he helped his father with his forestry work and later joined the family business: Sylva Croissance During summer jobs, internships and when helping his father, Julien began to forge his experience in the forest and the different operations it involves.
He has worked in every area of the forestry sector, beginning as a forestry laborer. He knows all about reforestation, clearing, pruning and all the mechanized maintenance work.
While working towards his degree, he did several forestry jobs, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Soon after that, Julien took charge of a team of forestry workers, coordinating the various work.
At the head of Sylva Croissance since 2008
He has worked as a forestry engineer since 2008 and is able to provide direct recommendations on silviculture treatments.
His preferred species:
“Red oak (quercus rubra) is an interesting species for its rapid growth in Quebec. It is robust, resistant and suffers little from pests. The red oak likes well-drained, sandy soils. It does well in different kinds of forest development plan. It’s my favorite deciduous species.”
“As for conifers, the Red Pine (Pinus resinosa) gives a good yield in plantations. Once felled, it can be used to make poles for telecommunication lines, which generates good earnings. It is certainly very attractive, economically!”
