A Guest in your
Guest Logging makes a point of leaving as light a footprint as possible in the woodlots where they carry out selective logging, because it’s the right thing to do—and they want to be invited back.

Successful business model
Ontario logging contractor Bruce Kropf has found a successful business model, using the services of a group of contract equipment operators to carry out the logging, while his company handles the trucking end.

Reman revamp
A BC reman company, Coldstream Lumber, has utilized the technical support of Forintek to look at better ways of manufacturing product, and to assist in developing effective equipment solutions.

Reworking the green end
