Aberdeen Ax Men Redefining “Water-Logged”

Ax Men is the History channel’s non-fiction series, which focuses on the Pacific Northwest logging industry. Some of the people showcased in this series come from logging families that go back to when the West was first being settled. They spend their days among the trees, working with powerful machines and at night they settle down in remote areas, far from the conveniences of civilization. Below is some information and a couple of promos for Season 2 of Ax Men:

“This season, AX MEN picks up with two of Oregon’s top logging companies from last year, J.M. Browning Logging of Astoria and Vernonia’s Pihl Logging. Adding to the competition are three newcomers, each bringing something different to the table. Rygaard Logging of Port Angeles, Washington, a fiery father-son team; R&R Conner Aviation of Conner, Montana, which utilizes helicopters to maximize its output; and S&S Aqua Logging of Aberdeen, Washington, a team of diving loggers who fish for timber in some of the Pacific Northwest’s most treacherous waters.”
