What is the Logging Industry?

Logging companies buy and lease log-harvesting equipment and vehicles and use them to fell trees. The trees are then transported as sawlogs to sawmills and pulp mills. The industry excludes breeding, planting or growing trees; as a result, companies are classified under the Timber Services industry (IBISWorld industry report 11311). Companies that truck timber are categorized under Local Specialized Freight Trucking (IBISWorld industry report 48422).
