Pictured is Bill Davis of Davis Contract Cutting from Blodgett, Oregon.
Bill is a professional faller with over 30 years of experience falling big timber. He cut this 9' diameter old growth fir in August of '98. It yielded approximately 30 million board feet. Photo Courtesy of Loggers World.
Here is a picture of Bill a few years earlier when we featured him on the cover of an early Madsen's catalog.
Here is a more recent picture of Bill at work, taken in 2013. Bill sent these in as potential Madsen's catalog cover shots. Thse are great photos and you'll probably be seeing one on an upcoming issue.
Here Bill is jacking a big one on a misty morning.
Bill's years of experience pays off when working in a valuable stand of trees like this. There is no room for mistakes here.
All of us at Madsen's say, "Thanks Bill, for sendng in these great photos and for your many years of patronage."
