One of the most rewarding jobs we do at Blue Ridge Timber Cutting is removing dangerous boating hazards to improve public safety. Most often these hazards appear in the form of trees swept into the river through natural erosion as streams slowly change course.
Each job is different as we work with clients like the Oregon State Marine Board, Union Pacific Railroad, BLM or the US Forest Service to address the pressing concern that a log jam or large tree with root wad attached can present. Unfortunately, lives are lost each year on our rivers and some of these deaths can be avoided by removing the obstacles that can cause boats to capsize, paddle boards to dive under and even those wearing lifejackets to be pinned under water in the rushing current.
We have decades of experience moving big wood in streams with our specialized winch trucks, which makes us the ideal contractor for mitigating in-stream hazards. We can do these jobs with a relatively low mobilization cost while providing long reach with a minimum of impact to the stream bed and surrounding environment.
Our extensive experience removing these hazards also means we can give you a bid and promptly mobilize one of our trucks.
