Prince George is the largest city in northern British Columbia. With 1600 lakes and rivers, four ski hills and hundreds of miles of hiking, biking and cross-country trails within a day of town, Prince Georgians are what you might call fanatical about their recreation.
In Prince George. wood drives the local economy, with forestry, plywood manufacture, numerous sawmills and three pulp mills as major employers and customers. The Mountain pine beetle epidemic has resulted in a short term boom in the forest industry as companies rush to cut dead standing trees before they have no value. Sawmill closures and the creation of 'supermills' is already being seen in the area and more closu res are expected. Mining exploration and development may become the future of Prince George.
