A professional forester since 1961, Mike Apsey served as Deputy Minister of Forests in B.C. from 1978 to 1984. He has acted as President and CEO of the Council of Forest Industry, and has sat on the chair of the National Forest Strategy Coalition, Wildlife Habitat Canada, and Tree Canada Foundation. His memoir, What's All This Got to Do With the Price of 2x4's? (University of Calgary, 2006), provides Apsey's perspective on the competing tensions of forestry conservation and international economics. It was completed with co-writers Matt Hughes and the late Ken Drushka.
