Once the logs needed for the next project have been selected in the plantation, they are hand felled. This process ensures that the logs are subjected to the least amount of damage possible during harvesting. The logs are skidded to the landing, sorted for suitability during our quality control process, then loaded for transportation to our log building yard. The logs harvested for your log home have average butt diameters of 450mm, tip diameters of 280mm or larger, and are around 18 meters in length. All logs are inspected to be free of insects, insect holes, or decay.
