The District of North Cowichan has managed a 5,000-hectare forest reserve since 1946 – providing residents with economic, environmental, educational and recreational benefits. The North Cowichan Municipal Forest makes up 25% of the district’s land base, and is managed at no cost to taxpayers – including protection from wildfires and invasive species. A variety of coastal species are harvested and sold to local mills.

The forest is managed to address community interests, with emphasis on reforestation and scenic values. A Forest Legacy Fund supports special projects, including scholarships and bursaries and a contest challenging local students to build with wood. The many trails in the municipal forest include Mount Tzouhalem, which is popular with hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.

Big news! Coast Forest and COFI will be coming together as one organization for a stronger, unified voice for BC’s forest industry.
This website will be updated until March 31st, 2018.

After this time, please visit BC Council of Forest Industries for more information on BC forestry.
