This old photo is a picture of Jack Pollman falling an eight foot diameter old growth Douglas Fir. It was taken near Wobbly Creek on the Cispus, near Randle, Washington in 1971. Jack was a loyal customer when Madsen's was a small and unknown saw shop. Jack fell timber like this for over forty years.
Jack and his crew were known around the region as top-rate timber fallers. Much of our early success serving pro saw users was due to our affiliation with Jack. He helped us identify many new and special products and services. He and his crew were early supporters of the STIHL brand and did a lot of testing for STIHL in the days when it was building a repuation among pro saw users in the Western US.
