In defence of log exports, B.C.s forest-sector organizations like the Coast Forest Products Association (CFPA) and Truck Loggers Association (TLA) argue that log exports are a very important part of the economics of the coast, ensuring that we can harvest the entire profile of the allowable cut, and that means getting into some of the harder, more economically challenged areas into the lower-quality stands. Log exports help you do that, and they help you do that in a manner that puts logs in front of domestic mills.
