Welcome to our Social Enterprise
The Aleza Lake Research Forest Society is a social enterprise based in Prince George, BC. We specialize in forest-based research, education and implementation of innovative forest practices. As a not-for-profit business, our organization has developed two revenue generating divisions that support our social objectives. Our revenue generating divisions include timber sales from our 9,000 ha forest tenure, and consulting services.
Our Consulting Services
We aim to bring the most innovative and unique solutions to our clients. We are experts at translating new research into forest management practice, designing and implementing small harvest and silviculture treatments, prescribing and managing sensitive, and managing publically visible treatments. We also design and implement research trials, demonstration sites, and field-based teaching modules. The solutions we bring are grounded in academic research and innovative methods that we adapt from our research and education activities to provide the best service to our clients. Whenever possible, we integrate consulting projects into our education program to leverage social benefits from our work, at no additional cost to the client.
Our Social Mission
