Founded in 2020 by twin brothers, Craig and Mitch Wilson, Mammoth Forestry is a forest and wildfire service company based in Fort St John, BC.
The Mammoth is an extinct reminder of our stewardship responsibility, that our resources aren’t inexhaustible.
Our mission is to cultivate respect for northern resources by providing sound advice and creative solutions for natural resource projects.
Co-founder and Business Manager Mitch Wilson is a dynamic and driven forest professional with over 10 years experience. Motivated by a passion for wilderness and a desire to serve others, Mitch’s career has taken him from British Columbia to Europe, Africa, Australia and back.
As a consultant for international development projects, Mitch supported various governments and communities in the sustainable management of their natural resources.
Mitch's key experiences include, planning and supervising forest operations, national park planning, project management and wildland firefighting.
Mitch enjoys the wilderness of Northern BC and when he's not working, he could be building a cabin, hiking near Tumbler Ridge or canoeing the Dease River.
Co-founder and Operations Manager, Craig Wilson is a natural leader whose mechanical mindset and engaging personality allows him to facilitate the seamless operation of systems, crews and equipment.
He developed his work ethic and leadership style early on, on oil rig platforms over two continents, moving into forestry and aircraft systems in 2011 as a Rappel Fire-fighter and Air-crewman in South-eastern Australia.
Craig and his wife moved to the Peace Region in 2012 to pursue Smoke-jumping for the B.C. Wildfire Service. They soon fell in love with the area and its people. As an incident commander, he learned complex management strategies involving aircraft, heavy equipment and fire-crews. After 12 seasons of wildfire he became the Parachute Systems and Packing Loft Supervisor in 2018. This helped him develop an eye for detail and a strong inclination toward safety.
No matter how complex the project, or how tight the timeline, Craig has the skills and experience to get it done.
