Visitors to a Sustainably Harvested Woodlot. They're standing in the skid trail which goes off to the right!

An FSC certified woodlot; just finished a harvest.

Note the intact forest crown inside the FSC certified woodlot. Taking out the worst allows room for the remaining (best) trees to grow.

Directional felling is a must for removing the worst trees without damaging the remaining (best.) A safe, efficient, and economical method.

Another Timber Frame we built--from the landowner's trees.

Our new moulder. Making trim and flooring for a client. Our first job from tree to finished product!

Value added products, like this flooring can make a commercially unsalable species a truly "premium" product.
