Rob Stewart stands in a Powell River cut block after his team have gone to work, grinding useful, clean fibre for hog fuel. They took about 68 truck loads of hog fuel out of the block, and left five metres of coarse, woody debris per hectare to keep the soil healthy. Photo: Adam Kveton.

At 53 years old, Rob Stewart would tell you his career has been a grind.

Stewart is the owner of Stewart Systems Inc., a mobile chipping and grinding company in B.C. that goes into cut blocks and makes use of what would otherwise be waste wood, turning it into pulp-quality chips, hog fuel or bark mulch while leaving enough debris for the soil to remain healthy.
