From Tree to Timber to Transport

Tires For Every Aspect of a Logging Operation 

Last fall, our marketing team took a trip through Georgia and Alabama to connect with our customers about the challenges facing them and to see our Primex logging tires in action. Watching the efficiency of our host logging operations and observing the size and power of the equipment used in-person is always amazing, and while we’re proud of the work our tires do in the forest, what we really hang our hard hat on is our ability to outfit operations—in this case, timber—with tires for every step of the way.

Flotation Tires Drive Productivity in the Forest

Flotation Tires: From Farm to Forest 

Though the cutting and harvesting of timber is the primary concern of logging operations, the protection of the forest floor from heavy equipment is also a priority for forward-thinking operations. Increasingly large and powerful logging machinery could cause damage to the ground and rip up the root map, slowing the time it takes for the forest to regenerate, reducing the rate of biomass production (resulting in less income), and making landowners unhappy. Fortunately for loggers—and forests—the use of flotation forestry tires is a simple way to minimize compaction and rutting.
