Vice President, Forestry, Coast Forest Products Association
Coast Forest is helping the provincial government to develop a comprehensive forest sector competitiveness strategy to elevate B.C.’s global marketplace position.
The industry is made up of a number of inter-related segments, (i.e. timber harvesting, primary sawmills, speciality sawmills, veneer, pulp and paper, etc.), and that competitiveness of the industry, as a whole, depends on the health of all the individual segments. The key driver for all the sectors is access to a consistent supply of affordable fibre. That is, the ability to access the timber profile that supports the current coastal Annual Allowable Cut (AAC).
