7. Into The Forest with Nick Arkle

Jim and George welcome Nick Arkle to discuss the forest industry. Nick, who has an extensive background in forestry, has lived in Kelowna since 1975 and is currently the CEO of the Gorman Group which includes five operating divisions.

In this episode, Nick shares his vast experience and takes us on a journey through the history of the Canadian forest industry, the US trade dispute, and the challenges due to the volatile market of lumber around the world. 

With forestry mills shutting down across British Columbia and Canada, Nick remains positive of the future and reminds us of the underlying opportunities in the lumber industry. From the mountain pine beetle, to COVID-19, forestry remains a necessity.
