A Focus on Sustainable Forestry
The goal of protecting the environment while providing jobs for our communities and high quality specialty wood products for our customers around the world, is grounded in Kalesnikoff’s commitment to a sustainable forest industry.
Kalesnikoff has practiced conscientious forestry stewardship since 1939 in the Kootenay Wet-Belt of BC. Through four generations of family management, Kalesnikoff has built a reputation for a balanced approach to environmental, social and economic values in its operations.
The West Kootenay region is rich in forest resources and Kalesnikoff is ever mindful of the delicate balance necessary for sustainable use. Operating in one of Canada’s scenic treasures demands that sensitivity. By careful planning for environmental values, selective harvesting and a vigorous reforestation and stand-tending program, Kalesnikoff ensures that our forests, environment, jobs and local economy are sustainable for future generations.
