I am getting ready to cut 12-15 old growth Red Oak trees in mid Western Lower Michigan and can’t find a timber hauler to save my life. Growing up in the Upper Peninsula you can’t throw a stone without hitting a logging truck. Anybody have any ideas? I need to get the logs about 100 miles away.

Thanks in advance.

All these logging videos I watch, most seem to be down in southern USA, guess thats where most logging is done nowadays. One option is a ton truck&trailer and make three trips, wonder what U-haul offers............

Found a timber hauler. All set. Thanks everyone.

These are grade logs going to a sawmill to make wood flooring for our new house.
