Invest in the B.C. Forest Sector
British Columbia is the world’s largest exporter of softwood lumber and has more than 60 million hectares of forested land, an area larger than France. It produces more lumber certified to environmental standards – of increasing importance to consumers – than any other region in the world. It is home to some of the world’s largest forestry companies. The industry is fully integrated with extensive transportation systems and some of the world’s most efficient sawmills. Port facilities are world class and shipping costs to the large U.S. and Asian markets are lower than other wood exporting regions. The B.C. brand of wood products is well established globally with market leading share in the United States, China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.
The B.C. forest sector offers attractive investment opportunities as well as a stable supply of high quality forestry products to international buyers. More details on investing in the British Columbia forest sector are available at:
