Morgantown's Second Pro Lumberjack Competition and Festival

The STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series, founded in 1985, is a series of wood chopping events where the athletes compete in the use of axes and saws in a manner that is typical of a lumberjack. It was a single camera on a forklift that kept record. At this time, there was no overall championship. Awards were only given for performances in individual events on venues around the country. However, STIHL® had a vision that would bring the best athletes together where they compete in a series of events which would then determine who was the best overall lumberjack. Now, the competitions have evolved and become very prestigious. Athletes from all around the world participate. Alongside its professional development has spawned a collegiate series involving over sixty teams and the overall winner automatically receives a seed for the upcoming professional series. This year is its 32nd anniversary. Millions of viewers watch athletes perform on ESPN® and ABC® SPORTS in six different disciplines. Their Social Media pages are followed by many.
