Frost Lake provides full stump-to-dump harvesting operations for both long logs and precision measurement cut to length delivery specifications. Frost Lake’s processes adhere to clients’ ISO 9000 certifications. Frost Lake has the strength of experience, depth of management, and capacity to provide all clients throughout the Pacific Northwest with customized, cost effective, and innovative solutions.
Frost Lake participates in a logistical management system with many of its client mills. Information is shared online through a proprietary “Frost Lake Load Times” intranet accessed securely via the Frost Lake website. Drivers, Contractors, and Mills can access the intranet to see the schedule for hauling times, radio frequencies, safety alerts, directions to blocks, cycle times and other logistic information.
Frost Lake builds 60 to 100 km of mainline and block road annually, as well as major bridge and culvert installation, maintenance and deactivation. Frost Lake permanently maintains the Leo Creek FSR and the Kazchek operating area roads systems in the Fort St. James Forest District. Year round maintenance includes grading, snow removal, and calcium application in the Fort St James Forest District.
Annual harvested volume by the companies in the Frost Lake Group will exceed 700,000 cubic metres per year in the immediate future.
Frost Lake has had a very lengthy relationship with the Sinclar Group, including Apollo Forest Products, Winton Global and Lakeland Mills. Frost Lake maintains an evergreen replaceable logging contract of 216,000 cubic metres for Apollo, and a further 60,000 for Winton Global.
All Sinclar mills are ISO 14001 (EMS) Registered Companies, and have completed their Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) certification. Frost Lake therefore has a wealth of experience operating within the EMS and CSA SFM framework.
