Forestry Services

We are your local forest management partner. We are a family owned, vertically integrated, forest stewardship company. For 40 years, we have been right here, in your community building our business by investing in state-of-the-art equipment, assembling and training the best people, and developing time tested technologies. These tools and great people have helped us be a successful partner in efficiently achieving your forest management goals and providing you with locally produced, quality wood products.

Products and Services

With our vertical integration, we can offer you a variety of forestry services, such as:

  • Mountain Pine Beetle Management
  • Defensible Space
  • Custom Thinning
  • Forest Restoration
  • Roller Chopping
  • Custom Timber Harvesting
  • Mechanical Brush Piling
  • Road Right-of-Way & Construction
  • Site Prep
  • Ditch, Power & Pipeline Right-of-Way

For instance, our Custom Thinning dramatically increases your property value by creating fuel breaks, removing dead and diseased timber, improving mountain views, and increasing vegetative biodiversity. Typically, the thinned timber "releases" and you are rewarded with increased growth and vigor in the remaining trees.

Defensible Space Thinning clears, manages brush and reduces fuels, which can help protect your valuable real estate investment. It may lower your home insurance rates, improve access to your property and often determines which homes can be defended during a fire emergency. We specialize in using customized state of the art equipment that requires limited working space, operates in difficult terrain, is light on the land and reduces the time required to perform the job.

Forest Restoration can restore the landscape scale of the forested areas to more open and natural stocking levels.

Our Equipment

We pride ourselves on our use of low impact and fuel efficient machinery!

Our TimberPro 630 articulated, self-leveling, all-wheel drive machine is "State-of-the-Art" technology that is unparalleled. We have paired it up with a Log Max 7000 dangle head harvester processor with computer controls to make the most efficient selection of product by diameter and length. These "cut-to-length" products are gathered up by a forwarder and "hot loaded" onto a trailer for transport to our mill or decked at the roadside for later hauling.

The Morbark Wolverine three-wheel tree shear cuts and stacks trees fast and efficiently. It is capable of working around buildings and in tight spaces with very little impact. It also allows us the flexibility to vertically remove trees from an area for a short distance as well as the opportunity to pre-bunch material for the grapple skidder to remove.
