The forest industry, like its roots, is firmly planted in British Columbia’s economy and communities. Its membership and supporters, like its trees, are resilient and standing strong against its many challenges. A pillar of BC’s economy supporting small rural communities and its largest cities, forestry is here to stay. This year’s convention, themed “Firmly Planted. Standing Strong” brings the forestry sector together to delve into the issues and policies that will significantly impact its growth for generations to come.
