Formed in 1982, the association's interests cover a wide spectrum - from the history of people and machines to the evolution of forest resource management and the associated social and political aspects.

Our 235 members represent a variety of professions and come from all corners of the province, with some hailing from the western United States and eastern Canada.

The association encourages the collection, preservation, cataloguing, and use of historical material related to the conservation, management, and utilization of the forests of the province. The Forest History Association of B.C. publishes a newsletter containing articles, biographies, lists of new literature, book reviews, notices of meetings, and requests for information from researchers.
