Overview

Are you looking to spend your work days breathing fresh, evergreen-scented air? We’re in need of a logging operator to run our harvester and other vehicles. Pack a lunch, because you’ll watch the sunrise with your fellow crew members and return to town after a long and satisfying day in the woods for an evening of rest.

When the weather or terrain gets rough, we need someone who will stick to assigned tasks and maintain a positive attitude. If all of the above sounds like a description of you, please fill out and submit an application.
