District Operations

The Fort Nelson Forest District Timber Scaling Section authorizes and designates all industry scalers, scale sites and the timbermarks given to wood being transported. The district check scaler then monitors scaling operations to make sure that all harvested timber is delivered and scaled properly, scales are submitted for billing, and that the billing is paid.

Timber scaling determines the volume and value of harvested wood, ensuring the Province receives accurate values from Fort Nelson Forest District's timber resource.
