About Jim Wilmer and Sons

Jim started out in the timber industry over 34 years ago, felling trees and selling firewood around local towns and villages then quickly diversified the business into timber harvesting with tractors and winches then harvesters and forwarders. After completing contract after contract, the company has since expanded to now being one of the largest timber harvesting contractors in Europe.
