Lower North Thompson Community Forest makes small mill enterprises work
Reporting on the BCCFA Webinar
By Jill Hayward
A webinar, hosted by the BC Community Forest Association took place on Dec. 8 for members only. According to the 2020 Indicators report, most of the logs harvested on community forests went to very large, and large mills, and only two of 27 participating community forests are operating their own mill. A focus of the BCCFA webinar was: With access to a long-term timber supply, do community forests have opportunities to add value to their harvested timber and to expand local employment through the establishment of their own small milling operation Featured in the presentation were two community forests – Harrop Procter, and Lower North Thompson – who are making their small mill enterprises work for their communities.
