Timber Harvest & Logging Supervision

Timber harvest planning and supervision from beginning to end. Where required, cutting plans are prepared and cutting permits applied for.  Inland wetland applications are filed.  Permits are posted on the job.
On-site logger orientation is conducted to acquaint all crew members with job layout, cutting and wetland permit requirements, and any other conditions of the work they must be aware of.  An on site logger orientation helps avoid many mistakes and unpleasant surprises, and is required for SFI compliance.


Weekly onsite inspection of ongoing operations is recommended to keep track of areas cut, permit compliance, condition of skid roads, crossings etc.  Weekly inspection reports not only keep you informed, but provide a recored of compliance with permit and regulatory requirements.
