The steep, boulder strewn terrain of Vancouver Island in British Columbia makes special demands on the logging operation run by Hayes Forest Services. The fallers use chainsaws on timber that can have a trunk diameter of 7ft or more in work that is dangerous but exhilarating. For yarding, the company uses equipment that ranges from 19th Century technology derived from shipping to the most modern machines. The timber is extracted by truck, train and helicopter.
During a six-week stay in British Columbia, Dylan Winter filmed all these facets of the enterprise as well as a dry land sort and the Somas mill. He also looked at some of the support operations including road maintenance, bridge-building and blasting.
