Abstract: The issue of log exports has been a topic of debate for decades in the Province of BC. With rising numbers of exports and decreasing manufacturing facilities on the coast of BC a squeeze for fibre supply is occurring. Currently the provincial government has jurisdiction over crown lands, and the exports from those lands. The economic downturn is pushing manufacturing on the coast to the brink, the average price for log to yield to the mill is $75, and the price willing to pay at manufacturing facilities is $50-60. The export logs are valued on average $80-120 and are able to support the domestic harvesting and manufacturing by selling a portion of logs at a loss.
