Forest Harvester in Action

When Western Forest Products gave us a forestry tour, they included a demonstration of how a CAT Harvester can harvest, limb, cut to length, and stack logs in one fell swoop.

It's an amazing machine that has revolutionized the industry. One person in a computerized cab can make the massive machine run through its tricks in no time.



In addition to demonstrating how new technology can make logging safer and easier, they also demonstrated how new logging practices help protect the forests and provide the means for regrowth. This resource industry is important in the Powell River region, and it's good to know there is a company willing to take the steps needed to make our forests sustainable. -- Margy
