Forests for Today and Tomorrow
The majestic forests on the coast of British Columbia, Canada, provide both natural wilderness and a bountiful source of beautiful, superior-quality forest products.
Coast Forest Products Association represents a modern industry made up of forestry companies that produce logs, lumber and pulp and paper.
Coast Forest member companies are known for their world-leading stewardship practices and focus on sustainability. They represent an innovative, high-tech industry that is creating a growing array of forest and wood products for expanding overseas and domestic markets.
Taan Forest Products, which was shaped by the Haida Nation under Haida Enterprise Corporation, sustainably manages almost 110,000 hectares and 460,000 cubic metres of annual harvest on Haida Gwaii, giving it access to some of the world’s finest western red cedar, yellow cedar, western hemlock and Sitka spruce. All of Taan’s operations are 100% FSC Certified for both woodlands operations and chain of custody.
As we get set to put the finishing touches on 2013 in just a few weeks, it’s a good time to take stock of one of British Columbia’s most important industries – about where it is and where we’d like to see it go.
The latest studies by PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Coast Forest Products Association have unveiled an exciting snapshot of where coast forestry is today. It reveals a people-focussed industry that has undergone exciting transformations and emerged dynamic, modern, sustainable and high-tech. We pride ourselves on being highly integrated across industries with our member companies offering a plethora of opportunities that positively impact the lifestyles and livelihoods of thousands of British Columbians.
