My wife and I just visited our Bayfield County property in the Town of Clover after your company logged it. I just wanted to thank you and let you know I thought things went seamlessly. Your payments were prompt and according to Mike, our consulting forester, were extremely accurate. I especially liked the efforts your crew went through to seal off the existing entrance to unwanted vehicles and efforts made to set up a cabin site. We also appreciated the efforts made to protect regenerated trees. Glad you folks won the bid and many thanks to you and the crew! It looks great and I'm looking forward to some chainsaw work up there!

June 2017 - I met Jamie Ofstad from Ottawa Forest Products when he and his crew were logging a property adjacent to mine. He informed me that I had some mature pine and aspen on my property that should be harvested. We walked the property and discussed what to cut and what to leave standing. Everything was done exactly as he proposed in his cutting contract. When his crew was finished all roads on my property were graded and improved to much better standards than when they started. They went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend Jamie and his crew to anyone that needs logging on their property.

My experience with Jamie Ofstad with Ottawa Forest Products was good. Having my property cut for the first time I was nervous. Jamie did everything he said he was going to do and explained things well and was available to meet with me to go over questions and or concerns while they were working. He and his team all took the extra effort to make things look good when they were done and Jamie treated me fairly on the stumpage and I was paid fast.
Irene Hendrickson - Herbster, WI
As the owner of 40 acres of land that I inherited, and never actually walked on or had the opportunity to see, Jamie was the best person to help me with the timber sale.
He gave me the information necessary for the process to go through with no problems. His knowledge and good judgement plus have a very pleasant personality made the whole process not only profitable but without worry. Thank you Jamie Ofstad for making my life better.

I contracted with Ottawa Forest Products to remove the mature Basswood and low quality hardwood from my land north of Bessemer. I chose to do business with Jamie Ofstad and his crew since they were recommended to me by another business involved in logging.
They pre-marked the logs they planned to cut before hand for my approval. They started the logging operation when they said they would, finished in the estimated time frame, and everything was cleaned up before they departed. I do recommend working with Jamie and his crew if you are considering any logging done on your land. Feel free to contact me with questions about their work.
