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.
