Our History

Founded in 1987 by James Wylie, SBS Forestry Inc. established a strong reputation for cost effective multiphase forest development consulting services in the Prince George and wider region servicing a client base from woodlot licensees, to government, to major forest products companies. Andre Stauble joined as Senior Partner in 1989. In 2008 Bill Wade purchased James’ and Andre’s shares taking on the role of principle partner.


As the company developed, long term employees Hans Rasmussen RFT (1988), Doug Bryce RFT (1989), Blaine Tallman RFT (1993) and John Annis (1994) joined the employee ownership group, providing consistent project delivery and client service. This team is integral to the day to day operations of SBS.
