Tim Bordges spent ten years as an equipment operator, faller and truck driver before starting Bordges Timber in 1986. Bordges Timber began as a salvage logger where he purchased salvage timber from BLM & USFS. Working with federal contracts, it gave the company an opportunity to assist in Fire Suppression. Back then there seemed to be a large fire every ten years or so. In 2000 Bordges Timber salvage sales declined and fires increased in both frequency and days worked, the company was able to devote their equipment and skills to fire suppression and fuels management.
Tim serves as president of Bordges Timber Inc., where today they hold equipment contracts in USFS RS, USFA R4, Cal Fire and Oregon Dept of Forestry. We strive to hire responsible qualified operators to provide quality work with sound business ethics. Tim held the position of past president of ACL and is a member of Associated California Loggers, California Forestry Association, California Cattlemen Association and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
