The steep boulder-strewn terrain of Vancouver Island makes special demands on the logging operation run by Hayes Forest Service. The fallers use chainsaws on timber that can have a trunk diameter in excess of 7ft. For yarding the company uses equipment that ranges from 19th-century technology derived from shipping to the most modern machines. The timber is extracted by truck, train and helicopter.
Dylan Winter filmed all of these facets of the enterprise. He also looked at some of the support operations including road maintenance, bridge building and blasting.
