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.

Companies that truck timber are categorized under Local Specialized Freight Trucking (IBISWorld industry report 48422).
