Logging & Marketing


Cascade Timber Consulting, Inc., represents the land and timber owner in the market place.  Our Timber and Log Marketing and Merchandizing program is built on over 30 years of experience.  We utilize a multitude of varying manufacturing and log purchasing organizations including sawmills, veneer and plywood operations, pole and piling yards, hardwood lumber manufactures, makers of engineered wood products, chip producers and exporters of logs to foreign countries.  It is our job to meet the timber owner’s objectives by removing and marketing logs to the best final destination.  We sell logs to reputable and accountable companies who pay their bills.  We hire qualified operators who will best fit the objectives, requests, requirements and restrictions of individual owners and timber stands.  It is our operator’s priority to maintain high quality log sorts and environmentally sound logging practices over production.  Our Timber Sale and Administrative Staff regularly attend training sessions and are members of varying professional organizations including; Linn Forest Protective Association, Oregon Logging Conference, Columbia River Log Scaling & Grading Bureau and Northwest Log Rules Advisory Group.
