My name is Rudy Johnson. My wife and I are the new owners of the Furlong Company, a timber broker company in Newberry, MI. We are interested in buying any timber that you may want thinned or cut off your property. We have coordinated logging jobs on Sugar, Neebish, Drummond, and are looking at beginning on Bois Blanc Island. The Furlong name has been a trusted company for over 80 years, and we are ready to put that trust to work for you. If you have any timber that you may want cut, we would be more than happy to assist you in setting up a land management plan and possible doing the cutting of your timber. If you would be interested in having the Furlong Company look at your timber and make an offer, please don't hesitate to give us a call at (906) 293-5155 or (906) 420-2325. Thanks and we look forward to talking to you!!!

I never considered this website an advertising spot. But since this post, I'll add my two cents worth for Northwoods Timber Products, Inc. It is a sawmill and timber management business (among other services) owned and operated by my husband and stepson, Russ Riker and Stuart Riker.

-Year round residents of Bois Blanc Island
-Work year round
-Work exclusively on BBI
-35+ years experience in the industry
-Operational sawmill located 1/4 mile from BBI dock, driveway
before Hawk's Landing. Come and see us!

If you would like one of our flyers or more information, call Russ at

I took the liberty of moving this thread to the business forum and also changed the title.

We didn't mean to offend anyone with our posting. Our company was contacted by a year-round resident of Bois Blanc regarding interest in logging their property on the island. Thanks for replying to our posting. We think the communication you have within this website is just great!! We too live in smaller communities in the U.P. and wish we had this type of forum set up for us. Thanks again and take care!

Hope I didn't imply that we were offended. We aren't. Just figured we would toot our own horn.
