Forestry and Woodworking
Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows three condensed maps and four graphs representing various forestry and woodworking processes as well as the correlating statistics for Canada. The first map on this plate shows the locations of sash, door and planing mills for 1951. This map includes establishments engaged wholly or principally in millwork or the production of sash, doors, frames, mouldings, planed lumber, matched lumber (other than hardwood flooring), prefabricated houses, wooden furniture, boxes and containers as well as plants specializing in milling in transit. The second map shows most of the plants devoted to furniture production in 1951, although some of them also manufacture commodities other than furniture as secondary products. The furniture industry is not exclusively concerned with woodworking as it produces such things as household furniture, office and store fixtures, metal and upholstered furniture and mattresses. In 1951, the furniture industry employed 27 274 persons and ranked 11th among manufacturing industries in terms of numbers employed and with a value of production of $190 907 420 ranked 24th in terms of value of production. The third and largest map on this plate shows the labour force engaged in forestry and logging and is based on 1951 census data. This labour force includes the craftsmen, labourers, technical and administrative personnel of logging companies, self employed loggers, foresters, fire rangers, and other forestry service personnel. Also included on this plate are three graphs showing lumber production for 1951. The first graph shows quantity of lumber production by province; the second shows value of woods operations by product; and the third shows quantity of lumber cut by kind.
