Clusko Logging wins Canfor’s top Canadian contractor award
By John Deere
Aug. 22, 2017 - Clusko Logging Enterprises in Clearwater, B.C., has won Canfor’s 2017 Top Canadian Contractor Award.
Clusko has been working for the Canfor mill for nearly 20 years, with the past four years based in the Vavenby division. Clusko is recognized by Canfor as having always exemplified excellence in all aspects of their business, whether it be safety, quality, delivery or FMS conformance.
This year, Clusko embraced the steep slope conditions in the Vavenby operation by purchasing an innovative ROB steep slope harvesting system, comprised of a John Deere 850J Dozer and a two-winch system. This system allowed them to access additional purchase wood as well as address some of Canfor’s challenging quota wood.
They were also instrumental in the success of the Vavenby operation with the two interim decking years this past winter to improve hauling capacity from Valemont and 100 Mile House areas into Canfor’s facility.
