It all began in 1980. Woodland Equipment Inc. was formed and opened their first branch in Kamloops, BC on January 15, 1980. They started by buying and selling used parts from burnt salvage machines and specialized in marketing Skidder parts for all brands of machines.
In 1992 Woodland became the first Hyundai Construction Equipment Dealer in BC marketing Excavators, Wheel Loaders, Log Loaders and Processors. Hyundai has become a world leader in the Construction Equipment field and Woodland has been successful in selling over 700 units to the Construction and Forest industry.
In the same year, Woodland became the first Peterson dealer in BC and Alberta to market Whole Tree Chippers and Recyclers. Peterson has become known as exceptional brand in the chipping and recycling business.
In 2008 Woodland became the first Ponsse dealer in Western Canada. Ponsse offers state of the art harvesters and forwarders to the industry.
Today, Woodland operates full sales, parts and service, and rentals from their branches within BC located in Kamloops, Prince George, Vernon, and a satellite dealer in Nelson.
The forestry sector has many positive developments and new technologies that will keep it profitable and actively moving forward.
The future of forestry in Western Canada is not only in continuing the sale of wood products to foreign markets and pulp mills but also in the use of lumber and it’s by-products as a clean and reliable energy source. Bio-mass initiatives in BC and the rest of Canada have led to a demanding market for materials that were previously discarded and burned as waste.
These developments have given logging contractors and others in the industry yet another opportunity to expand their opportunities in the current economic climate as well contribute positively to the environment.
Woodland’s line of reputable products establishes us at the forefront of new initiatives in the forest industry. This includes equipment for bio-mass and co-generation as well as established practices of the supply of chips to pulp mills and recyclers for pellet mills and the latest technology in traditional logging operations.
