Based in the city of Vancouver, the association’s was geared towards considering ways and means for the betterment of the condition and the promotion of the loggers’ business in the province. The association was also involved in several economic initiatives in the logging industry. It aimed to regulate the output of Forest Production to conform to the demands and requirements of manufacturers, to secure a uniform schedule of all prices for Forest Products, and promote the sale of wood products and discourage the use of substitutes. The B.C. Loggers association was also involved in the devising ways and means to achieving uniformity in the classification and scale of spar, piles, bolts and timber.
