First Log Load of 2017

A deck of logs piled up in the landing.Finally we have enough board feet in the landing for a log truck load of timber to be shipped from the landing.

Log mills vary tremendously, some only accept logs to make into pulp, others need specific circumferences and lengths for international sales and yet others need a completely different set of criteria to ship for domestic markets.

Currently we have contracts with 3 mills, if we get to the thinning job to clean up the winter storm debris we will need to have another contract to take that specific timber. It really is a much more complicated sorting process than one would think. Once the logs get to the desired mill, sorting takes on a whole new realm with many more rules and regulations.

This first load is destined to go to the Weyerhauser facility in Longview, Washington to be shipped export.
