Hamilton Logging Inc. is a third generation logging  business.  The small family business was  started in the late 1950’s primarily in Sullivan County Indiana.  Sadly, several family members have lost  their lives, while logging.

As time progressed and family dynamics have changed, in 1996  Bobby (Robert) Hamilton started his own business, and Hamilton Logging Inc was formed.  Still a successful family business, Bobby  continues to set a high standard of deep faith and family values.   Bobby believes that Integrity and hard work  are the keys to a successful business.  

Bobby works extremely hard to ensure that private sale landowners and  state forest logging jobs are completed in a timely manner and that those  involved are satisfied.

The logging  crews and equipment are covered by liability and insurance while conducting the  business of logging.  Hamilton Logging  operates 12 month a year…weather permitting.

 Bobby realized his passion and love for logging during a summer  part-time job, while on summer break from college in 1983.    He continued working and learning all  aspects of the logging business.  Bobby  has done everything from …

-Skidding tree’s to yard -Cutting timber - Yard/ Knuckle boom operator - Working in Sawmill -Operate dozer -Drive semi -Buying timber -Cut tree’s into logs manually -Scale logs

Personally, Bobby has  29 year experience in the logging industry.    Hamilton Logging is blessed to have two (2) separate logging  crews with a total of fifteen (15) professional, contract labor loggers.

That’s over 200 years combined logging experience.    The Hamilton Logging, contract labor loggers  have completed Better Management Practices (BMP) classes through the Indiana  Department of Natural Resources.  In  addition to the BMP training, the timber cutters have completed Phase 1 of  timber cutting.  The Phase 1 class  teaches timber cutting techniques covering a variety of situations.  The Phase 1 class is taught by a qualified  Indiana Department of Resources representative.

  In 2008, after many years of struggling to get the logs  hauled from the logging job site to the log yard or sawmill … it was decided to  purchase a semi and log trailer.  Out of  these struggles, Hamilton Trucking LLC was born.   Since then, we have six (6) semi’s and seven  (7) log trailers.  Our six (6) semi  drivers have over 150 year’s semi driving experience. 

Since February 2010, Bobby no longer works at the logging  job site on a daily bases.  Bobby is a  Timber Buyer, which means… contacting potential timber leads from “private  sale” landowners.  If the landowner is  interested in possibly selling their timber, Bobby will then walk the timber  with the landowner, if possible.  If the  landowner and

Bobby can agree to a price … a contract is signed and Hamilton  Logging will put a good faith deposit on the timber.  When the logging crews are ready to move on  this timber to start the logging process, the agreed upon amount will be paid in full before any tree is cut  from the property. 

We are a Licensed and Bonded Timber Agent In the state of Indiana
