Swartzentruber Sawmill: Tree Harvesting and Timber Clearing
June 2, 2020

Tree harvesting, also known as timber clearing, has been necessary for the survival and growth of societies around the world, including the United States over 100 years before its founding. This essential service remains incredibly needed today, especially for construction projects. Read ahead to learn more about tree harvesting, its invaluable role in our society, and how Swartzentruber Sawmill can provide you with every timber-related service or product you could ever need.

What Is Tree Harvesting?

Tree harvesting is the act of cutting down trees and transporting them to sawmills. It has been an important component to both logging and road construction since the early 17th century. Though the processed wood that came from logging in those times would often be used to make ships, it was also a crucial element for people building homes. Logging gave people the ability to build homes and protect themselves from the elements, and it also provided many careers in woodworking and construction. 

Logging became essential to the economic development of settlers arriving in Jamestown, Virginia. The employment opportunities were considerable, especially as the demand increased with the arrival of new settlers. This demand eventually became an important factor in the decision for many settlers to head west in the 1800s. By the 20th century, states such as Washington and Oregon in the Northwest had become among the largest contributors to logging in the United States.

Tree harvesting has never been easy work. Those in the industry would work long hours in potentially dangerous situations. Thankfully, with the invention of cranes and other logging equipment, the job has become far less precarious. Still, it requires an understanding of the environment, safety procedures, physical capability, and much more.
