Timber Harvesting

left
     Real horsepower moved the logs in the early days.
The timber fallers call of  'Timberrr' still rings out in the forest today.
     Not so long ago logging railroads, horse teams and crews with crosscut saws were common.
The log train's whistle could be heard for miles around from the 1880's to the 1970's.
     Many West Virginians can warmly recall hearing the train's whistle as powerful locomotives rambled out of the mountains.
Well trained individuals and team work get your logs to market safely and efficiently
     Today our company contracts with professional timber production companies to harvest the trees we purchase.
The timber cutter is just one of many important team members supplying world markets with quality logs
     Each fully insured and licensed company is extensively trained by the State regarding compliance with West Virginia's timbering and clean water regulations.
Skidders have lots of horsepower to skid trees up to a mile to the landing.
     Rubber tired skidders are used to transport the trees to the landing area from the woods.
Once the trees are measured up, the hydra saw is used to cut them into logs. Watch the sawdust fly!
     The trees are merchandized on the landing for the highest paying market. This dandy log will be exported overseas.
This truck has 525 horsepower and has traveled over 500,000 miles without an accident.
     Modern trucks, safely loaded, get the product to the highest paying market.
