Our Focus

We are primarily focused upon the preparation of trees, either manufacturing trees as a Standing Stem, directionally falling (or jacking) of the trees, and wind proofing the resultant timber edges of the harvest area. The present workforce consists of 19 individuals involved in the preparation of Standing Stem, 9 individuals who conduct wind firming and tree climbing activities.
