TLA Staff

David Elstone, RPF

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
E-mail: david@tla.ca
Tel: 604.684.4291 ext. 1
David Elstone, RPF, brought a wealth of forestry experience with him to the TLA. For ten years, he worked as a senior analyst for ERA Forest Products Research focusing on global and local forest products markets. In that role, he was a frequent public speaker at industry conferences, a sought-out source by the media and a regular contributor to forestry publications such as Truck LoggerBC. His insights into the BC forest industry and its markets will be invaluable to the membership. 
 
Before joining ERA Forest Products Research, David owned and operated his own forestry consulting company, Delstone Resources, on the Sunshine Coast. As a consultant, he developed business plans for forest product companies and advised on strategic and operational issues related to forest management. He also represented clients in discussions with First Nations, forest tenure licensees and contractors as well as local and provincial governments. David’s background in on-the-ground forestry and business negotiations gives him a depth of knowledge critical to representing the TLA membership—independent timber harvesting contractors, independent sawmills, small tenure holders and industry suppliers.
