Top lumberjacks and lumberjills to compete at STIHL TIMBERSPORTS

    Swinging an ax and wielding a saw is a century-plus-old tradition in Oregon. The timber industry helped build the state, and lumberjacking used to be one of the biggest trades in the Northwest. So it’s surprising that the premier timber sports competition, the Stihl Timbersports Series, hasn’t been to Oregon … until now.

    The top lumberjacks and lumberjills from all over the globe, plus some log-loving dogs, will be in Salem to chop and saw their way to a championship during the Oregon State Fair.

    One of the top 32 competitors in the world is from little Idleyld Park, east of Roseburg, and he hopes to bring the title home to Oregon.
