Highly entertaining and watchable. I find the insights into the technical way in which timber is taken from the hills to the mill very interesting, but it is some of the characters they follow through the series that makes it truly watchable. They follow 4 crews, and the introduction to each crew each time they change location gets a little wearing.
Without a doubt it is a tough and dangerous job, but you get insights into how the job should be done properly. Most of the time the crews seem to be up against equipment reliability, rough terrain, the weather and time. Little seems to be given to safety.
Even my wife enjoys watching it.
Looking forward to series 2.

The most dangerous job in America, logging in the Pacific Northwest is 26 times more hazardous than the average U.S.job. The scale of the Oregon wilderness is mind boggling with loggers working in a one million acre forest, harvesting wood for the construction industry. This series follows four crews each with different work ethics, methods and deadlines but all with the same goal, to pull as much wood from the hills before the mill stops taking timber.

To see the danger faced by these men daily is truly awe inspiring, each crew is a mixture of old hands and greenhorns and the clash of personalities is an intriguing facet of this programme. Battling adverse weather conditions, equipment failure and their bosses unrealistic expectations with weary minds and bodies makes for compelling viewing. And all this before the recession adds more pressure to the industry, we get an insight into how far guys are willing to go to keep hold of their business in a failing economy.

Then the region is hit by the worst storm on record cutting a swathe of destruction through the logging towns of Oregon. Adversity just became more adverse. From the guys who filmed Ice Road Truckers - Series 1 - Complete [DVD] [2007] this series will have you glued to your seat with a renewed appreciation for the cushy office job !!

I love this series. It gets better further down the series though. I wanted to start around the beginning so I bough this series. Plus it was a good price.

The only thing to mention about this series - (and all the other American series really)is that when something happens its made out to be more dramatical than it really is and you have to watch it again about three times. Its almost like they are just dragging it out to fill time.

Keep on logging ;)

I had watched a couple of random episodes on tv and was keen to see the whole series. I was not disappointed. I have series II as well and highly recommend them to others.

Well worth the money I paid for it. I only recently got into the series and enjoyed it so much I thought I'd take a look at the older ones, I wasn't disappointed. If your a fan of the series, you should snap this up!

I have not actually seen this one as I gave this as a Christmas gift to someone and have not heard from them as yet, but if it's as good as the others I feel sure it will be fine.
