ABOUT STIHL TIMBERSPORTS

The STIHL Timbersports Series is established worldwide as the major league of lumberjack sports, with a massive global fan-base following competitive events live and on TV. The sport originated in Canada where lumberjacks held local competitions to determine the best of their profession. Over time these tests of strength and skill evolved to a professional level and in 1985 the first STIHL Timbersports Series Championships were held. In Canada, STIHL Timbersports has consistently grown from a niche sport in the lumberjack community to a National Tour with over 15 competitions from east to west.
