The future will not be without its challenges, but you have to stay positive and look ahead to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This was the message Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad passed on to local business owners and concerned locals that attended a Burns Lake and District Chamber of Commerce meeting last Thursday. The meeting was held in the wake of the Babine Forest Products explosion and fire that devastated the sawmill on Jan. 20, 2012. Rustad said the government’s first priority is to help the injured mill workers and their families. He said the Employment Insurance process has been streamlined for the employees and that cheques are already starting to flow.

The destruction of the Babine Forest Products sawmill in Burns Lake last month has thrust forestry issues back to the fore. Workers in Burns Lake are understandably angry that the mill’s owners, Hampton Affiliates, did not immediately announce they would rebuild. Things aren’t that simple … and it has to do with timber supply and the mountain pine beetle infestation. Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson, who actually worked at the Burns Lake mill when he toiled for Weldwood, has an interesting take on whether the mill should, or will, re-open.

HELSINKI, Finland — Stora Enso Oyj has reported a 66 per cent plunge in fourth-quarter net profit to C100 million as the paper maker was hit by higher costs and low demand.

China is now the world’s largest importer of softwood logs and lumber, as reported by Wood Resources International. The importance of China to forestry’s export earnings will be a key focus at the Future Forestry Finance conference series. According to a report from Wood Resources International, a US-based forest industry consulting firm, the total value of softwood log and lumber imports to China equaled almost eight billion US dollars last year. “Anyone associated with forestry in Australasia knows that China’s steady economic growth drives wood demand from Canada, USA and New Zealand/Australia. That 8 – 9% growth continues to be the antidote to Europe’s economic woes for southern hemisphere wood exporters,” says John Stulen Event Director of the Future Forestry Finance conference series.

Advancement in Wood Veneer Durability and Backing

Category: Wood, Paper & Green Building
Region: Canada

Wood veneer, with us since the days the ancient Egyptians began making fine furniture, has evolved in production quality, consistency and application. Competing with decorative laminates and other alternatives, wood veneer is holding its ground, in part because of recent developments such as improved backings, and more durable surfaces. A trend toward natural interiors is also furthering the cause for those who see real wood veneer as preferable to non-wood-based substitutes. Through traditional forms of sheet veneer (raw, paper and phenolic backed, laid up) and patterns (book matched, slip matched, radial matched and diamond matched, etc.) are adapted to shifting interior design trends (textured surfaces and reconstituted wood veneers), classic styles still dominate.

Old spring board stumps and felled tree remnants from 100-year old historic logging operations are being turned into premium finish grade material in their Whatcom County facility. The Local Source team removes the millable wood via helicopter to minimize on-the-ground impact to the forest.

No need for national park

Letter to the Editor

Region: Canada, Canada West

First of all, here’s kudos to the efforts of the local citizens and land users on the “No” side of the South Okanagan national park debate. Professional foresters, loggers, farmers, licensed trappers, and especially ranchers such as the Quaedvleigs of Keremeos are some of the most knowledgeable and conscientious managers of our forests and rangelands. Groups like the Cattlemen’s Association, Ducks Unlimited and the B.C. Wildlife Federation know that the main thing that needs to be conserved is our water and grazing resources. More water means more sustainable fruitfulness, which results in far richer biodiversity than does the so-called “Yes” side’s mistaken concept that our lands must remain a fallow wasteland to “preserve” some obscure bug or plant that’s there.

Environmental groups supporting the Great Bear Rainforest agreement said Tuesday that the B.C. government is not meeting conservation targets set six years ago in a landmark agreement that would preserve 70 per cent of the central coast forest but allow commercial logging on the rest. ForestEthics, the Sierra Club and Greenpeace said with two years to go before a new approach to logging, called eco-system-based management, is supposed to be fully implemented on the land, the province has fallen behind on its share of the work. Further, they said, only 50 per cent of the land is protected because the government mapwork is incomplete.

A disagreement on the restocking of BC’s forests has the government on the defensive. The NDP is claiming the BC Liberals are underestimating the amount of forest that falls into a category called NSR or, Not Satisfactorily Restocked. The term previously dealt with areas not re-seeded prior to mandatory reforest laws which came into effect in the 1980’s. But now, the NDP and the armslength Forest Practices Board claim the amount of unseeded land is far greater than the government’s estimated few hundred thousand hectares. Forests Minister Steve Thomson says while there is a dispute on the numbers, there is no major problem.

The logs sank a century or so ago, sentries to history as four Georgia rivers ebbed and flowed around them. Should they now be sold to the highest bidder? One of the Senate’s top lawmakers believes so, keeping alive a debate whether loggers may raise the sunken logs and sell the wood. It has raged for years, with a one-time state ban on the practice giving way to a failed pilot program and ongoing lawsuits. Just last year, the House derailed an effort by two votes to again make it legal. Now “deadhead” logging may be back.

While much has been written from a theoretical perspective about markets for ecosystem services, few on-the-ground projects currently exist. Yet the projects that do exist provide one of the best windows onto what actually works in practice. That’s why WRI has issued a new brief, Insights from the Field: Forests for Climate and Timber to discuss an innovative initiative called the Carbon Canopy. The Carbon Canopy, led by NGO Dogwood Alliance and office products company Staples Inc., is a consortium of companies (including Domtar and Coca Cola), corporate and non-industrial private woodland owners, and NGOs (including Rainforest Alliance and Pacific Forest Trust) that seeks to leverage markets for ecosystem services with the aim of increasing the area of southern U.S. forests certified under sustainable management. Currently, the Carbon Canopy has projects under development that span approximately 26,000 acres in Appalachia.
