Conscientious Logging is in Our Roots

Our style of logging is unique: we have an entire system based on preserving the environment. We selectively fall marked timber and use directional falling to protect developing trees.
After every job, we have a clean-up crew that reseeds the grass, spreads straw, builds water bars if necessary, and smooths out the land all in order to prevent soil erosion and promote a regrowth of trees.
Our goal is to ensure has little damage as possible on the job, and optimal forest regeneration after.
