Pihl Logging

Pihl Logging has been the lifeblood of Vernonia, Oregon for almost 25 years. Of the 2,300 residents in town, almost all know someone who relies on company owner Mike Pihl to keep their family fed.

Pihl Logging is comprised of a group of men who like to trade jibes with each other almost as much as they like to cut timber. At the heart of the operation is 30-year veteran timber cutter Dwayne Dethlefs, who is the embodiment of old-school logging. Rounding out the crew is Dwayne's son Dustin and a host of other colourful characters. The men at Pihl are like family, at-times dysfunctional but always entertaining. They may fight like brothers, but they will always have each others' backs.
