Our Trucking Division

Log Hauling, Trucking, & Lumber Transportation

Our sawmill handles the harvest from start to finish, including transporting all timber to the mill utilizing our own company-owned trucks—so that you don’t have to hire any outsourced work!

Get the Best Value for Your Standing Timber

Manage your forest most profitably by selling timber to a sawmill with dedicated logging crews, loaders, and a log hauling fleet in-house!

From the Forest to the Mill: Harvesting & Loading

With over 100 years of practicing sustainable forestry comes a proven track record in the timber industry. Our forest management process is comprehensive—providing you with everything you need for a successful, profitable timber harvest without you having to worry about any of the details. 

To facilitate this, Buskirk Lumber employs dedicated harvesters, heavy equipment operators, and truck drivers to man our own log and lumber trucking fleet.

Our Process

After an assessment offer is agreed upon, our harvesters pay you in full prior to the start of the harvest. Then our team brings the necessary heavy-duty equipment and trucks to the site to harvest on a scheduled date.

Learn more about the process.

Our logging professionals practice selective harvesting to cut down mature timber from your woodlot.

We sort and haul the cut timber with heavy machinery as needed.

Our loader operators load the cut timber using our self-loading log trucks—each with a lift capacity of nearly 4.5 tons.

Once your logs are loaded, our log truck drivers haul the harvested timber to our sawmill, where it is unloaded using the self-loading boom.

By selling your hardwood timber directly to a sawmill, you not only have the easiest, safest, and most profitable outcome compared to other logging methods, but you do not have to put in the work or the extra money for hiring third-party log hauling companies or renting your own log hauler truck.

  • No outsourced or DIY work or log hauling required. 
  • Negotiate directly with the sawmill and receive higher prices for your timber.
  • Allow more of the profits to flow directly to you.

Our Log Truck Services & Lumber Transportation Fleet

We have our own state-of-the-art fleet so that we can personally handle each step of your project, unlike your average logging truck companies. Our log hauling trailer and lumber distribution trucks travel throughout the state of Michigan and to local states to harvest standing timber and distribute hardwood lumber to the companies we partner with

Looking for logging trucks for hire? Learn how selling your timber to a sawmill for both harvest and transport can ensure you the most direct profits.
