ABOUT US

Wahkash Contracting was founded in 1983 by a group of loggers who leveraged their combined skills to perform stump to dump logging in some of the coast’s most remote locations. Over the next 35 years, opportunity was given to up and coming loggers with similar skill sets to take on ownership, building the company into what it is today.

ClimbMAX in its element!
The Theodolite app captures screen shots of the setting that averages 77% to 80% (See reading on right side centre of picture). The ClimbMAX tether line is shackled to a 22” diameter 48 year old second growth fir tree 700’ up the hill. The tree is tied back with ratchet strap tie backs. The ClimbMAX operator falls and yards the entire setting in one pass.
This is a great approach to safely and efficiently harvesting a steep slope, young second, third and fourth growth. The future is now!

Dry land sort at the head of Knight Inlet.
Winter returned March 10th, note the air is cleaner, Hayes emblem and faces of logs that have snow stuck to them from the snow falling during the haul. Just mild enough that only slush was on the main line. We are thankful for the grader keeping the spur roads open!
Snowed one foot on the top settings but managed to keep going thanks to some great planning. Nice work guys!
