History of Logging

  • The First Nations people were the first to log the Bella Coola Valley. The Cedar tree was used for many items of every day living including mats, utensils, baskets and clothing.
  • Wood was harvested for housing, canoes and ceremonial items.
  • The largest use of wood at this time would have been for heating and cooking fuel.
