Abstract: The forestry industry in British Columbia has undergone many changes throughout its existence. It has evolved from simple coastal logging operations to become a highly regulated and commercialized process spanning across the province. Technological and managerial innovations have played a dominant role in shaping progress in the industry. Innovation made the industry more efficient, allowed logging to take place where previously impossible, and developed new ways to manage the landscape and the changing values on it. This essay will examine the history of technological and managerial progression in BC, how and when it occurred, as well as how it affected the industry. The paper will conclude with some thoughts on the future direction of forestry in the province.
