The University of New Brunswick (UNB) Woodsmen Team is a fully student-led group composed of both male and female students from the university. The team has been continuously active since the early 1960s. Every year, they participate in lumberjack contests at several locations, including their own university, Sir Sanford Fleming College in Lindsey, Ontario, McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, and the Nova Scotia Agricultural College in Truro, Nova Scotia. The team also travels to numerous competitions in the Northeastern United States. Their events range from pole climbing and axe throwing to chainsaw competitions, among others.
For nearly half a century, they have been organizing their own competition in Fredericton, attracting teams from areas as diverse as northern Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New York, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Maine.
