About STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series

STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® – The Original Extreme Sport – features the nation’s best lumberjack sports athletes. Competitors go head-to-head using razor sharp axes and high-powered chainsaws in six thrilling disciplines: the hot saw, single buck, springboard chop, standing block chop, stock saw and underhand chop. STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® started in 1985 at regional U.S. logging competitions, and has grown to become a worldwide phenomenon with National Championships in 27 countries, culminating in the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® World Championships (Individual and Team Relay). The sport now also includes Collegiate and Rookie Divisions, as well as a Women’s Division. The sport is sponsored in the U.S. by Duluth Trading Company and John Deere.
