Prior to becoming a general contractor, Swaggart Brothers spent many years as a premier logging company in the Pacific Northwest. Many of the logging projects Swaggart Brothers performed utilized the venerable skyline yarder. Skyline yarders were designed to move trees out of steep mountainous canyons using cables that span from ridgeline to ridgeline. This allows loggers to pull cut logs from steep crevices to a safe location for processing and load out. Over the last few years, Swaggart Brothers has begun to utilize this proven logging technology to solve many complex challenges in non-logging environments. Swaggart Brothers own and operate several of these machines and are prepared to assist in any project that may need the use of a Skyline, anywhere in the world.
