17,000 cubic meters of ‘mixed species’ timber, destined for sorting at Western Forest Product’s Burlieth water sort opposite Ladysmith

The Hercules created a splash at the entrance to Ladysmith Harbour recently, unloading 17,000 cubic meters of ‘mixed species’ timber, destined for sorting at Western Forest Product’s Burlieth water sort opposite Ladysmith. The wood was loaded in Gold River, and will eventually be processed at WFP’s Ladysmith and Saltair mills, or made available for local resale. The Ladysmith and Saltair mills are both located in Ladysmith Harbour. The Ladysmith Mill, built in 1967, specializes in small logs; the Saltair Mill, built in 1972, processes multi-species, mid-sized logs and is “capable of filling a diversified order file for high-quality Western Red Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas fir products.” Stay tuned to a future edition of the Chronicle for a story on the Burlieth water sort.
