Welcome to the BC Forest Service's Centenary website!

The BC Forest Service celebrates 100 years of exemplary resource stewardship. The aim of this website is to provide the public with an account and historical overview of the last 100 years of Forest Service in the Province of British Columbia. The history of the BC Forest Service is varied, encompassing a range of goals and objectives, all designed to safeguard, promote and sustain the many facets of Forest Management throughout our province.

In commemoration of our 100 year history of managing British Columbia's forests and rangelands, we have created this retrospective website. Browse and learn about the people, the stories, the places and the technologies which have come to define the proud past of the BC Forest Service.
