Creek Crossings

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

On most timber sales there will be at least one creek crossing. The crossing method we like best is shown here. Zack Wilson of Wilson Logging Company is shown putting in a creek crossing on a timber harvest in Alleghany County, Carolina.

Here Zack is backing down to the creek crossing with a metal bridge mat.

Zack has positioned 4 four foot wide mats to form a bridge.

To finish up Zack is hauling brush that will be placed on either side of the bridges to keep the soil from rutting.
