Logging Industry Vancouver Island British Columbia
Photo & Vacation Spot

Rafts and trucks are a common sight on the roads and waterways of Vancouver Island in British Columbia as the logging industry continues to leave its mark on the landscape.

In quick time, areas of forest on Vancouver Island are cleared - then from remote locations the logs are dropped into the sea to be rafted up and transported to a processing plant.


Logging has been the mainstay industry on Vancouver Island for over a century with new methods of felling and transportation being developed on a regular basis. Large rafts of logs or barges laden with logs are common sights in the straits and waterways off Vancouver Island being towed to a far away destination.


There is a lot of controversy surrounding the logging industry on Vancouver Island which has seen old growth forests demolished leaving huges gaps in the landscape allowing for run off and leaving a multitude of animals without habitat.
