The Upper Nicola Band in Merritt and Ardew Wood Products Ltd have been partners since 1996 in a forest licence specifically for conversion of overstocked small diameter lodgepole pines, often seen as waste product; by harvesting and replanting them they become productive trees for the future. A First Nations’ logging trucking company, road building forestry division and silviculture operations have been created as a result of this long-term partnership.
