Around here all the timber comes off gov't land the logger has to bid on the timber sale. You guys log private land and never gets replanted so once its gone its gone. Here once a area is logged its replanted and can be logged again in another 10 years time. There are areas here where one logging contractor logged a area 15 years ago and went back and logged the area again.

It is called sustainable forestry there will always be marketable timber to cut.

A logging truck here can haul 30 ton of wood the logs are 60 feet long. Depending on the load your looking at 20 grand per truck load if its a load of premium western red cedar probably looking at 40 grand per load.

Forestry is big money for this province when California's building boom was going 90% of the wood come from B.C.
