Harvesting and Logging Insurance

Planting, growing, and managing timber is a major investment of time and money, and requires significant maintenance. Meanwhile, logging has consistently been one of the most hazardous industries in the United States. Traditional insurance for these businesses is expensive and inadequate. With our risk assessment expertise and carrier partners, we have access to exclusive insurance programs to protect standing timber and loggers.

Transportation and Hauling Insurance

Whether it's moving logs from the woods to the mills, or the finished product from the mills to the customer, the transportation process is a critical aspect of our nationwide forest products industry. Due to the high-hazard risk, it can be exceedingly difficult to find competitive and specialized coverage. Our transportation division will work tirelessly to find the proper insurance coverage to fit your specific needs.
