Mercer Forestry Services is attuned to the region’s deep-rooted logging and farming history. Situated within a 5-hour drive northeast of Vancouver, Lumby serves as a fertile ground for our diverse services.
Founded in 1995, Mercer Forestry Services has steadily grown to become a key player in the fibre market. Annually, we handle 300,000 cubic meters of wood, affirming our significant role in regional economic vitality.
We augment Mercer’s broader operations, closely working with Mercer Celgar in chip hauling. Like Mercer Holz, we offer log harvesting and hauling services to third-party clients in British Columbia. Our road-building services further ease access to remote work sites.
Aligned with Mercer’s focus on sustainability and data-driven decision-making, Mercer Forestry Services is set for future expansion. We aim to be more than a company; we strive to be agents of sustainable and responsible forestry.
Join us as we continue to integrate into Lumby’s community, championing a future where responsible stewardship and sustainable practices are paramount. Together, we bridge tradition and progress.
