We are the Art of Felling Timber

Our Team

What started out as a vision, to create an advanced tree felling course, has grown over the years into a nationally recognized training program. Additional course options have allowed us to bring more people into our program. Not only through advanced courses, but also providing to our new and less experienced sawyers with beginner courses as well. 

Of course this wouldn’t be possible without an amazing team that shares a passion for teaching others.

Biography

Qualifications: TBD

I’ve always had an urge to be in the woods, and always was drawn to logging, and timber falling. I started like every man of the woods by setting chokers. 2 summers of that and I had an opportunity to cut for a few days and I was hooked. From then on I cut part-time and worked as a line worker for 8 years, I was doing hazard tree mitigation, small scale removals, small commercial thinning and modified clear cuts, every other week. Eventually, work slowed down and I went and cut full-time commercial timber cutting. From there, I really learned the art of felling from a stellar faller who was meticulous and precise. Invaluable lessons learned and 1 smashed saw,I decided to cash in my retirement and go all in to start Coast Range Tree Service Inc., 3 years later I’m going strong and haven’t looked back. 15 years behind the saw and Timber cutting and tree work is the most rewarding work I’ve done, and I’m proud every day I get to impart some of my wisdom and experience to the fallers coming up in the ranks. I’m glad to be part of Roy’s team, and looking forward to working with his program!
