The Business of Sustainable Forestry
Sustainability The Truck Loggers Association continues to promote sustainability of timber harvesting contractors and the communities they support.
The Truck Loggers Association (TLA) believes that a strong and sustainable working forest will generate long-term prosperity for the people of British Columbia, and that the people who work in our forests should share in this prosperity. We work to shape a business environment in the forest industry that ensures the sustainability of timber harvesting contractors and the communities they support. Our members operate businesses engaged in logging, road building, log hauling, small forest licence management, log brokerage, independent sawmilling, remanufacturing, heavy equipment sales and service, fuel delivery, camp operations and other businesses that service BC’s forest industry. Together, with other independent contractors, we are responsible for close to 90 percent of the timber harvested in BC. By acting as a vital link between communities and the province and providing hands-on advice to government, industry and community leaders, the TLA helps to create workable solutions that address the challenges facing today’s forest industry.
