#ForestryFamilies Video 3 – The Corsers

Posted by AFPA | October 16, 2018

The Corser family, from Edson and Yellowhead County, has been in Alberta’s forest industry for nearly 100 years. This pioneering family has seen a great deal of change in the forest industry. From the days when logging was done by horse to the modern industry that we know today.

Through it all, the family’s strong bonds and desire to pass their knowledge down through multiple generations has helped keep their business and community going strong.
