Forest for the Trees
Once the railway was completed, many sawmills were built to process the timber in the valley. Along with all of the logging and sawmills came a need to manage and protect the forests, so the B.C. Forest Service established an office in McBride.

Themes List

Logging and Lumbering - An important part of the early local economy was the milling of cedar and pine for posts and ties.

The Forest Service - The B.C. Forest Service helped prevent forest fires and managed timber for the logging and sawmill companies.
