Lumbering: 0051.0250

EAST KOOTENAY LUMBER – Will Necessitate Exceptional Energy to Supply the Demand

            With the advent of spring there has been an increase in the demand for lumber.

            Local lumber dealers report several large orders from Alberta.

            The Crow’s Nest Pass Lumber Co. are preparing to bring down a drive of logs from the St. Mary’s river camps.

            Everything goes to show that the chances for Southeast Kootenay lumber in the markets of the Northwest should be exceptionally good this year.

            Logging activity in the Kootenay valley is now ended, a conservative estimate places the cut at about 55,000,000 feet of logs.

            Southeast Kootenay seems to have a particular attraction for lumbermen from all parts of Canada and the United States.  Several representatives of Eastern Canadian lumbering concerns are expected at Steele next month, who are anxious to secure timber limits in the Kootenay valley.
