The November/December digital edition of Canadian Forest Industries is now available!
For this issue’s cover story, CFI hit the B.C. slopes to visit A.F. Timber, a husband-and-wife logging operation in Nelson, B.C., specializing in cable-yarding steep, difficult terrain. They started as a one-machine operation in 1998, and grew to become one of Interior B.C.’s busiest contractors.
A steep slope harvesting expert also wrote an article to answer the question: is logging on steep slopes a challenge or a solution?
Our contributing editor caught up with Groupe Savoie to discuss the company’s latest investment on a new sorting plant at its facility in New Brunswick. We also have a feature on artificial intelligence and how it can help us obtain better data on forests. Our contributor wrote about how partnerships with Indigenous communities can enhance the success and sustainability of the forest sector. Another prevalent topic in our industry is social license, and our columnist wrote a thought-provoking piece on that subject.
One of our popular features is the Forestry Leaders Q&A, and in this issue, we talk to COFI’s new president and CEO Linda Coady, and I hope you will be inspired by her optimism.
Also in this issue is a year-end update on the North American softwood lumber market, our coverage of the Timber Processing and Energy Expo held in Portland, Ore., in September, and comprehensive features on introducing new technology in the woods, as well as new equipment in the market.
