Manitoba Scaling Course

Timber scaling is the process of measuring or estimating the quantity of trees after they are felled, expressed as volume, area, length, mass or number of products.  Information collected from scaling is used to determine wood volumes for Crown dues payments, wage payments, statistical analysis, commercial transactions, research and development and inventory control.

The authority for the measurement of all forest products harvested on Crown lands in Manitoba is contained in the provisions of The Forest Act Chapter F 150 (C.C.S.M. c. F150) and Forest Use and Management Regulation 227/88 R, which states that No person shall act as a scaler unless he holds a valid and subsisting Manitoba scaler’s licence.”

The next Scaling Licence Course is scheduled for September 2019 in Swan River, MB.
