The province of British Columbia in Canada plans to reduce the export of raw logs by requiring certain types of lumber from the Interior region to undergo manufacturing first. The changes to lumber regulations will require mills to fully manufacture lumber from cedar and cypress trees, producing various wood products like wood veneer, mouldings, shingles, siding, flooring, and fencing. The new regulations are set to take effect in February, and an exemption must be obtained to export wood products that do not meet the specifications, with a fee-in-lieu of manufacturing paid to the province. This move aims to increase the value of wood products and create more job opportunities in the province’s forestry sector.
