You just contract cutting, or cutting and yarding?

Either way, I think WCLA  (loggers.com maybe?) can insure you in Alaska, if not they may know someone who will.

My insurance is less then that, much less, and they will take installments.

There is another outfit, think they are called northcascades... ?


Otherwise you may have to find someone in Alaska, and try contacting a few loggers and figure out who their insurance is through.  Not many from Alaska on this site.
well that didn't work

I am sure insurance varies from state to state and different applications.  That sounds high though.  You should do as suggested above and find different loggers in the area and see who they go through.  Most likely you will find who to stay away from as well.  Good luck

There's something to be said for the Stone Age IMHO.

Good deal.

WCLA is good folks, they run a master logger class down here as well, I keep meaning to get certified, Doesn't cost much, just takes more time then I have.
well that didn't work
