Deep Community Roots
Located on the south shore of Kootenay Lake, the cooperative is a vital resource for our small community. Every dollar spent on our high quality forest products is an investment in the health of our community and a vote towards for a more sustainable relationship with our natural resources.

A Sustainable Vision

We aim to manage our community-owned forest at levels that exceed FSC® standards. Our forest products are milled near the shores of Kootenay Lake, in Harrop, and sold to contractors and homeowners in Southeastern BC and further afield.

Watershed Protection

Community input and oversight of forest operations in the Harrop Procter area is a key function. An in-house program regularly samples and tests water quality of the four main creeks within the community forest.

Forest Management

To actively manage our forests for the resilience and health of our community and environment we employ an ecosystem-based approach to forest management activities.


Actively engage the community and beyond to build knowledge, understanding and awareness of best practices in ongoing forest management.
