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.

Want to join a great company? We’re looking for skilled and motivated employees.
