Advertising Opportunities

Some things to consider when planning your print and web advertising campaign. Forestry in Canada is:*

A Massive Market

  • $66 billion in total revenues in 2010
  • Employs almost 3% of working Canadians – 600,500
  • The world’s largest exporter of forest products – up 10% since 2009 and growing
  • Capital expenditures of $4.2 billion annually
  • The world’s largest exporter of forest products with 18% of the global market

A Varied Market
It’s not just logging and sawmilling gear, although there’s plenty of that. There’s also:

  • Trucks and Trailers, as the second largest user of truck transport at 18 billion tonnes/km
  • Trains, as the largest user of rail transport
  • Motors, drives and conveyors
  • Pick-up trucks. Loggers continue to average four HD pick-ups per contractor, and replace them every three years.

Plus Lubes, tools, tires, chains, software, GPS, Insurance, safety gear, finance, cell and sat phones, hydraulics, boilers, etc…

A Captive Market
The professionals doing all this are remote, but we reach them just fine, to the tune of over 14,100 readers per issue through a carefully managed BPA audited circulation. We’ve been doing it over 100 years, and with two dedicated full time editors in the field and a seasoned editorial director, our coverage and credibility is second to none! For more on our readers and their buying power based on our 2013 survey, view this infographic.
