We were founded on the heritage and traditions of the West. With that as our guide for a simple beginning, we have developed a set of deeply held beliefs as a company that guide and govern our behaviors and interactions with others. Quality performance, hard work, dedication, loyalty, and teamwork serve as its cornerstone. This is known as “The Miller Timber Way”.
Miller Timber Services’ dedicated employees “ride for the brand”. We understand that success is not dictated by a single person within the company, but by the collective, collaborative efforts of a team driven by a common sense of purpose and direction.
Miller Timber Services, Inc. is a family-owned, small business with over 30 years of forest management and emergency services experience. The Company started under sole-proprietorship in June of 1981. A short year later, it became an Oregon corporation owned by Lee and Belinda Miller. Although the Company’s place of origin was Siletz, Oregon, it was relocated to Philomath, Oregon in 1987. Since its early beginning, Miller Timber Services, Inc. has expanded in both capability and expertise by providing comprehensive forestry and emergency services for private and industrial landowners, as well as government agencies.
Growth of Miller Timber Services, Inc. and increased demand for the Company’s capabilities led Lee, in January 1993, to form L & B Reforestation, Inc. L & B Reforestation, Inc. was founded as a sister company to Miller Timber Services as a means to provide the most comprehensive solution in meeting the challenges of forest management. Named after Lee and Belinda Miller, this related corporation enjoys the benefits of operating synonymously with Miller Timber Services, Inc.
Corporate lines are blurred as resource leveraging is a common practice. This segment of the business possesses the technical knowledge and capability to provide a wide variety of reforestation solutions.
Another integral part of the Miller Timber Services business model is Miller Timber Logging, Inc. Miller Timber Services, Inc. began logging operations in 1994. Early interest in cut-to-length (CTL) technology served as the foundation for growth in all aspects of logging. The first yarder side, with landing machines, was added in 1996. In December 2002, as Miller Timber Services Inc. continued to expand, Miller Timber Logging, Inc. was formed as a sister company to operate the logging division, further increasing the Company’s breadth and depth.
In combination, our affiliation of companies (Miller Timber Services, Inc., and L & B Reforestation, Inc., collectively referred to as Miller Timber Services, Inc.), provides an extensive, well-diversified line-up of capabilities.
