Forest Stewardship

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 Lumber Company’s commitment to a sustainable forest industry.

 

Kalesnikoff Lumber has practiced conscientious forestry stewardship since 1939 in the Kootenay Wet-Belt of BC. Through four generations of family management, Kalesnikoff Lumber has built a reputation for a balanced approach to environmental, social and economic values in its operations.

 

Our region is rich in forest resources and Kalesnikoff Lumber 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 Lumber Company ensures that our forests, environment, jobs and local economy are sustainable for future generations.
