    Logging Equipment Pictures

    How about a thread for posting our logging equipment 'in action' pictures? New, old, or otherwise- lets show each other where we've been and what we were using. I'll start with some cable logging gear from the 1960's..........

    Logging in Hoonah, Alaska, September 2009

    Here's a Madill 009 and Link-Belt 4300 working in the hills above Hoonah Sound in Alaska. View from the landing here isn't bad either!

    Nice pictures. Small world. I was just checking out that yarder in Hunzs yard in Skagway. Looks like shes been there a while. A guy working for me worked for Whitestone in Hoonah for over 20 years. I'll have to have him look at your pictures.

    Sweet! he'll recognize the Hoonah ground forsure. I heard Cliff W was working out at Kensington last week. Good to see you here, and from here no less!

    I know Cliff. Whitestone was over logging on Afognak when they sold out to Evergreen. I didn't know there was much logging going on at Hoonah. Those cruise lines don't like that. LOL!

    I know Cliff too- and both Eric and Brian from Evergreen. Might even know you, LOL. I love that the cruise ships hate the logging. And the loggers hate the cruise ships. Alaska politics. I like the loggers and the cruise ships, but the drama is fun to watch. We need both groups to survive.

    That is some nice country to work in. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us.

    Looks like the logged areas provide some diversity in the habitat areas. That is usually a good thing, as it breaks up the areas so new plants and animals can take advantage. Like a fire does, but we get the use of the wood. A good trade.

    We closed down around 300 miles of Logging roads after Silver Bay pulled out of Afognak. A couple years later Whitestone came in and we did some barge work for them. They bought a bunch of used piling to use for culverts to open the roads back up. They like the piling because they're easier to remove without damaging them. We did a lot of work for Ben A Thomas too. Not many of the old outfits still around. I agree that the state needs both industries to survive.
