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.

Line loader hard at work!
A snorkel machine or line loader is used for “wide stripping” in some cases. This is where the falling is complete and prior to the grapple yarder starting we use the snorkel machine to yard, process, and load out the reachable strip of logs on ether side of the road. This clears the grapple yarders piling area also.
