Seizing opportunity with an eye toward diversity, WyEast Timber Services has found success in operations ranging from cable logging to firewood production and everything in between. Under owner Paul Jones, the operation includes Neal Creek Forest Products for mulch and bark and firewood production; and Middle Mountain Trucking that operates four log hauling trucks and three lowboys.
The company’s offices on the south side of Hood River include a firewood and bark and mulch yard and large shop. Neal Creek produces bark and firewood at the site, and also offers rock and soil products as well. In addition, Neal Creek operates a pole log sort yard on site for Bell Lumber.
And if that’s not enough diversification, the company has been producing some clear slabs, custom beams and even flower planter kits with a set of Wood-Mizer and Peterson sawmills.
