Chaired by Frederick John Fulton, the commission was appointed July 9, 1909, for the purpose of making inquiry into the timber resources of BC and “to report the facts and the means that should be adopted to conserve the supply of timber, to guard against fire and to utilise vacant lands suitable for afforestation.” The commission began work on August 16, 1909, holding its first session at Victoria. Sittings were held in different parts of the province, and interim and final reports were submitted in 1910.
