Salvaged Logs after the 2017 & 2018 BC Wildfires

Salvaged Logs Coming into CTF

After two record-breaking wildfire seasons we have started to see burnt logs coming into our yard after being hand selected by our team.

More than 1.35 million hectares burned across British Columbia in 2018, surpassing the previous year’s total by more than 100,000 hectares. Burnt logs can be salvaged and produce exceptional fiber and timber.

CTF is always on the hunt for drier timber so we are known to logging operations as a reliable buyer of dead standing and fire killed timber. This drier material is actually less valuable to plywood and veneer mills as it is too dry to peel so our timber frame requirements help “find homes” for these trees that have met a shorter life span. Learn more about our timber frame process here.

We are hopeful that 2019 won’t see a repeat of the previous 2 summers and we will continue to use salvaged logs where we can and support the sustainable management of British Columbia’s forests.
