Harkness Logging

Frank Harkness is a third-generation logger who, along with sons Jay R and Brandon, operates Harkness Logging with whip-smart wit and a joke for every mishap. Frank is an innovator in the logging industry and, thanks to a cable-assisted tether system Frank had specially engineered which allows the crew to log terrain that’s too steep to even walk up, takes on jobs other companies won’t touch. He has lost family members to the dangers of logging and intends to make the industry safer—an idea that sounds contradictory, considering his company is taking on some of the most dangerous terrain in the country, high up in the snowy slopes of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. Frank often takes the reins, not wanting to put his sons or his crew members at risk on the icy landscape.
