ERICKSON’S APPROACH TO TIMBER HARVESTING
Erickson got its start as a helicopter logging company, and over the decades we’ve perfected our techniques.
Aerial timber harvesting is superior to traditional logging practices because timber can be lifted vertically from the place it was felled and flown to its destination, rather than dragged across the forest floor and causing untold damage to soil and adjacent trees. No roads need to be constructed, dramatically cutting down on costs—even remote areas with prime logging can be accessed without disturbing the environment.
With our talented crew and our fleet of S-64 Air Crane® aircraft, we’re the prime choice for forestry harvesting contractors. We can pull limbed and topped trees right from where they stand, or even bundle together felled logs in “inaccessible” areas to an appropriate weight with our feller buncher, so we can move the most softwoods with the fewest flights. Make your next logging venture your most efficient yet with Erickson.
