June 1971 edition of Loggers World.)
t
he sun is shining more often and once in
awhile it gets warm.
grass is growing up thru the cement and from
under the buildings but refuses to grow where it
is carefully planted and nurtured. the fir trees
have their buds shining pale green. Spring is actual and summer is promised. fine time of the
year.
now only if we had a good strong lumber market that would be reflected with the fast action
and high demand for logs. generally speaking it
is slow but thru natural onriness and an ingrained toughness suspect that we’ll pull thru.
Perhaps better than we have any right to.
on the bleaker side is the utter disregard for
the property and the rights of others that is coming on strong. Some of the radical activity we
have been subjected to is an ulcer on our country.
Guns!
t
he more trouble we have and the greater
the need for some protection the bigger the
cry goes to get rid of guns. a citizen of his country
is going to be hard pressed to keep his firearms.
you hear a hell of a lot of noise and read a lot of
writing about how much better off we’d all be if
none of us were allowed to have guns. on page
two of this issue is some info lifted bodily from
the national rifle association about some people
who used guns to guard themselves and their
property.
reprinted below is a Story from the “Whistle
Punk” a newsletter published by the Southern
oregon timber industries association of Medford, oregon and is edited by Martin Craine. the
title of this Story is “Cruising for Cruisers.” it
in This issue...
goes like this: “the following true story is reported by dave keiser,
kogap Mfg., Medford…on or about
March 23rd, harry
obrien, bull buck and
timber faller with vanderlip Logging had a
narrow escape from an
attempted robbery on a
lonely logging road. harry was going to inspect a
logging job; he passed
an old sedan with texas
license plates. three men were in the car and as
he passed them harry wondered if he was making a mistake letting them get in a position to cut
him off form the main highway.
harry’s fears were realized when the texas
Sedan fell in behind him, followed him to the end
of the road and parked crossways blocking his
way out. one man approached harry’s pickup
from the driver’s side and two from the other side.
the men on the driver’s side asked harry if he
had any money, while the other two attempted to
open the locked door on the other side. through
the partially open window, harry shoved the
muzzle of his loaded dear rifle under the would be robber’s nose and informed him
that unless he got his buddies away from the door he’d
be hard pressed for a place
to hang his hat.
the three punks believed
harry was going to shoot if
necessary so they obeyed his
instructions to pile into
their car and get down the
FINLEY HAYS
road.
i say good for harry
obrien and good luck to him. our thanks to the
Whistle Punk for this true story.
Jobs!
O
ne thing that we should all realize is that
any job is in danger of changing or being entirely replaced by better tools and procedures. it
is likely to happen to most of us and has happened to many of us. this is a sad thing but one
fact of a progressive civilization. So in my opinion it is only wise to keep up with the new developments and keep loose and ready to learn. that

logs in its grasp. They were selectively logging on privately owned Galbraith Mountain just outside of Bellingham, Washington, which is laced
with hiking and mountain biking trails in and through the landscape. “All
70,000 people (in town) can see that mountain from every part of the
city,” Rob Janicki explained.

always isn’t enough protection but it is one good
method of being well thought of and valuable to
the employer. Just in my time many jobs are not
even heard of anymore: saw filers, firemen, wood
splitter, water pump men, locomotive engineers,
brakemen and so on down the line. Less need every year for head loaders, climbers, and other
jobs. a man has to stay loose and never be afraid
to learn a new job and should welcome the chance
to do so. occasionally a man will say that he
would like to see progress come to a screeching
halt. Progress to come to a stop? before man invented fire or after fire was invented?
Meandering!
O
tto Oja is fast becoming the best chain saw
carver of all time. he keeps improving. this
is by design, study and practice and is no accident. his work is remarkable. otto will be carving at the deming Logging Show the second
weekend in June. he is now known as the “northwest Chain Saw artist.”
eldon olin’s set of drawings (Posters) are selling like hotcakes. Probably the most popular and
sought after item we have ever handled. there is
a group of lawyers who have rented an entire
floor of the first national building (hope that’s
right) in Seattle. they have eldon olin’s Posters
framed and hung on their high class wall. Which
is fitting because eldon olin is a high class artist.
have been intending to get a week off early in
July and go up into Canada for a fishing trip.
hope we can make it.
hope that hap Johnson and i will be able to go
Moose hunting again this fall. We have plans to
take a boat up into alaska and hit the yukon river about 180 miles east of fairbanks and hunt up
the river. understand that it gets cold there in
the fall so maybe we will get a better idea between now and then. that is one thing i look forward to hard and strong every year. it isn’t that
i’m such a good hunter but enjoy the trip, hap’s
company and the chance to see some new country.
We don’t hunt quite like the hunters described in
the hunting poem in last month’s Loggers World.
the poem is on page two of the May (1970) issue
by Mrs. Castle.
tried steelhead fishing last Winter but didn’t
set any records. fished on the Skagit river for
three full days. one time had a fish on for a few
minutes. outside that flurry of action nothing!
Can’t help but do better next year.

f
our generations ago, the then
19-year-old Polish immigrant
Stanley Janicki, Sr. entered the
united States alone, with the
clothes on his back, the change in
his pocket, and although some (in
retrospect) would describe that as
fearless, its more accurately characterized by his grandson Mike Janicki as “being an adventurer,” with a
spirit of wanderlust that runs
strong in every generation since.
“no one is sure of his background,”
Janicki explained. “he came to
Chicago and from there to Washington (state). he’d heard they were
giving away land in Washington
(through the 1911 homestead act)”
and it was that opportunity that
captivated his attention. “he was
born in 1893, and there was no
Poland... it was part of Prussia...
and they were second class citizens,
persecuted,” Janicki explained before adding, “...he came to a better
place.”
With his land claim in hand, he
then, “...went back to Chicago,”
when World War i started. “his interest was in getting his girlfriend,”
Janicki explained, “... and the uSa
wasn’t in the war,” so he “joined the
Clothing the
Working Man for
Canadian Calvary in 1914, fought
his way into Poland. he got his girlfriend, then came back to Chicago in
1916, got married,” where the story
takes another turn. “he was drafted
by the united States army,” Janicki
noted, “and then sent back to europe,” staying there through the end
of the war.” because he was fluent
both in english and Polish, “...they
kept him in the military ‘til 1920 to
rebuild Poland, when he was finally
able to return to his family and
Washington state.
the original 1912 land claim’s
acreage was covered in old growth
trees. “the english timber Company had done him a service,” Janicki
explained, “and clear cut his land
claim” (saving him the time and effort of doing so he could farm) and
as a result, he could actually build
on it upon his arrival. the added
benefit came in his landing a job
MIKE HALL (from the left), talks over this section of the Galbraith
Mount job Janicki Logging is working on with Mike and Partick Janicki. “Mike Halls the most valuable person I have.. he’s the hook
tender and the bull boss... he makes sure the tower doesn’t tip
over.” They’re standing on part of the “...bike trail that goes
through it. We’re trying to keep this in a park like situation even in a
clear cutting area.”

Living off the land
“a
fter the (shake mill’s) failure,” said Janicki, “grandpa
Janicki decided he could be a house
painter,” then quickly discovered no
one had money to paint their houses, but put a much higher priority
on their roofs needing repairs,
which Janicki’s experience in the
shake business allowed him to capitalize on by repairing those roofs,
which he did to keep things going
the next 18 months. “by 1930 the
kids went to picking up logs (off
their own acreage), splitting them,
making shakes by hand and selling
them locally.” the business was all
driven, “...by word of mouth” ‘til
1932 when Janicki established the
Cedar Crest Shake Mill in 1932 on
Janicki road, by an old rail line, hiring a crew, incorporating the mill
and mechanizing the process.
the shake mill shifted operations
into the Sedro Woolley property in
the 40s, at today’s company headquarters, to be near the work force
and to electrical power.
the Second World War put the
Janicki sons and daughters into the
war effort, three of the daughters

in Clear Lake. “he worked in the
shake part of the mill, which produced 600,000 shingles a day, until
they went out of business in 1927.”
that same year (1927) his son
Stanley, Jr. (Mike’s father) was
born, the seventh child of the brood.
“they were living in a log cabin,
with seven children, had no job, going into the great recession (depression).”
STAN JANICKI ran the company

brother Walt, and is the father of

Stan and Walt started the company back in 1960.

the armed forces. “dad turned 18 in

by war’s end was involved in tearing
down the Polish concentration
camps, returning home finally in
1949.
once back in Washington, Stan,
Jr. “...went to Seattle university on
the gi bill, graduating in 1951 or
so,” with a degree in civil engineering, working for a few years for
bethlehem Steel, before returning to
Sedro Wooley to work at the family
shake mill.

with his dad,” explained Mike Janicki, “then discovered couldn’t work
with dad and started his own company, Janicki Logging, incorporating that in 1957.”
the economic crunch in 1959,
however, brought logging to a halt,
and he put his education to use
working for Stone & Webster engineering the upper baker dam,
“where he was in charge of the concrete pours for that dam,” but the
entrepreneurial spirit was always
laying in wait.
“in 1960 dad bought a federal
(timber) sale, and called uncle Walt
who was working for Morrisonknudsen building power plants in
Libya (at the time),” Janicki explained, “saying he needed help, and
asking him to be 50/50 partners,” an
offer his brother accepted.

name was changed to Janicki broth(Continued on Page 10)

engineer,” he explained.
during his freshman year he met
his wife-to-be, Lisa. “She was 17,
and i was 18, maybe 19,” he explained. “We were set up on a blind
date my wife’s freshman year, and
married on senior years... We
eloped.”
“When i graduated from gonzaga university in 1981, i went to
work for the company about 1 1/2
months, but in ‘81 coming into the
timber industry didn’t work out
well, so i got a job with Wilder Construction,” where he learned about
explosives. “they had a lot of expertise in dynamite,” Janicki explained.
“i worked for them up in alaska engineering their road works and some
of their design work for explosives
and rock from ‘82-’84.”
“then in 1984,” Janicki said with
a smile, “i got that phone call from
my dad saying, ‘We’re really busy.
i’m either selling the company or i
have to hire people or whatever.
Can you come down?’ at the time we
had 2 1/2 kids and we were making
good money, and Lisa is from alaska.” but on putting the proposition
by his wife, her comment was, “family has to come first,” and “...drove
down to Sedro Woolley. Lisa and
i’ve been here ever since.”
each of the Janicki offspring
worked for the logging company
during the summers rather it was in
the office or out in the field following high school, both for summer
jobs and during breaks while in col-
lege. “dad knew we were coming,”
Janicki explained, “so he’d bid really
big jobs,” to utilize the additional
staff.
rob Janicki graduated from gonzaga with degrees in physics and
mathematics, and spent several
years working for ross Perot’s company, first in San francisco then at
the corporate offices in texas until
in ‘93 he received “the call,” from
brother Mike Janicki, who according
to rob, jokingly “...asked how would
you like to come to work for a dying
industry with no hope in the future,” then seriously dropped the
line that sold rob: “...do you really
want to work for someone else?”
that compelled him to consider his
long range future and brought him
into the company.
“his (Mike’s) plan was for me to
take what i’d learned and trying to
make things better,” not just doing
what had been done, but in finding
additional options. “it took about
eight years to find out what he’d
meant,” rob explained. “one of the
things we settled into: Mike was in
charge of operations, and i was in
charge of sales & marketing.” it’s a
blend of talents that’s worked out
well when all is said and done, as
rob explained with a smile and
smirk explaining, “...what really

DARYL WEBB has been operating Janicki’s Prentice 620
FB feller buncher with a Keto 800 dangle head processor
this past year. He’s been logging “37-38 years. “I was a
hook tender, mainly out in the brush,”he explained, in addition to running stroker for six years. “This handles a
good sized tree,” he said of the Keto 800.
RANDY JONES began logging out
of high school, and his father was a
logger as well. He’s operated forwarders the past 15 years. He
joined Janicki nine years ago, and
has operated the Timberjack 1410
six years, noting, “...it’s outstanding.” It has a 14-ton capacity, and
can haul a longer log he said.

changing timber base and amount of
work available in the area. they’d
take the “tough jobs,” adjusting to
the changing circumstances. “in
about ‘95 was the first time we hired
helicopters to log for us, and we’ve
had seven or eight helicopter jobs
since,” whatever it took to match
what was available.
“We’ve downsized a lot,” Janicki
explained. “We have one tower remaining now, and keep it busier
than many. We worked almost 12
months out of the year with the tower, half tower logging and half tower

adds considerable diversity to the
overall operation fitting the times
we live in.
the job on galbraith Mountain,
just outside bellingham, Washington that they were selectively thinning was a perfect example of politically smart logging. the 3,015 acres
is privately owned forest land, and a
popular recreation area used by the
nearby community laced with hiking
and mountain biking trails in and
through the landscape. “all 70,000
people (in town) can see that mountain from every part of the city.
they see trees,” rob noted. “the
plan: biodiversity, habitat, hot
spots,” and a healthier forest, all accomplished under the watchful and
interested eyes of those who see this
mountain as their playground. Janicki is approaching the plan with
two timberjack 1270 harvesters
with koehring 762C processing
heads, a forwarder, Cat 527, a hand
faller for oversized removal, shovels,
and operators trained and armed
with knowledge and a handout,
readily available to stop and answer
questions or just talk with the many
people combing the area each day.
“i’m into making allies,” Mike
Janicki emphasized. “that’s my job,
to take people that grew up where
earth first grew up and convince
them the timber industry is their ally through these field experiments,”
healthy harvest plans, and engaging, demonstrating what logging really is, “through action, not talking.”
The next generation
t
he eye is always on the future
with the Janicki family, an essential part of which is the next generation. “if you want to get people to
work for us such as Patrick (his oldest son),” Mike Janicki emphasized,

ly changed harvesting regimes.
“We’d been on sustainable (harvests) before the policy changes.
then from ‘92 - 2000 we harvested
all the private lands out here,” rob
added. “Mike could see we’ll run out
of wood for the big towers. We could
see all those plots left of growing
2nd growth,” and to be part of that
future logging, “we need to find how
to be part of that. We weren’t going
to be a roving company, going where
the work was.”
rob explained, “Mike had studied
(timberland availability) and (we)
knew there’d be a gap from ‘01 ‘til
‘08. We needed to do something in
between. and by fate we bought a
company, their thinning business
and their crew, and had made the
last decade working on smaller profit margins. thinning young timber
is a niche,” Janicki explained, and
one which they were committed to
exploring and understanding.
Plus in today’s political climate,
you’ve got to be aware and adapt to
the political realities. “you’ve heard
of partial cut,” Mike said then explained, “we do what we call a political cut. When it’s science, it’s political science.” he then continued,
“What our goal is, you can either
fight them or you can profit from
them,” so they altered perspective,
changed approach, conformed the
language of logging, continue to do a
good logging job, and “So we go
ahead.”
in 2009 they did a study, “...on a
17 year old stand and performed a
service for the landowner, to see
how many acres of chip n saw or
pulp we could take,” Janicki explained. “We didn’t make any money
on that in 2009. We logged it because there was nothing else to do,
but what we learned is we could
harvest 17 year old stand, log the
pulp and we won’t charge you for
(pre commercial thinning) for free,”
he said smiling. “and that opened
some eyes for us, and it’s opened the
eyes of local land owners.”
he then cautioned, “you can’t do

JANICKI INDUSTRIES was established by Peter Janicki as Janicki Machine Design in 1993, with brother John joining him in 1994. The company changed its name to Janicki Industries in 2001, and presently

to get those young professional people up here. that’s what i’ve realized. the owner’s job has to sell the
next generation (just as Stan Janicki sold his sons), that this is worth
giving up what you have to come up
to.” the message in the end has
worked well for each generation:
“do you want to work for somebody
else or for yourself?”
Patrick Janicki is the youngest of
Mike and Lisa Janicki’s five offspring, having graduated with a degree in finance and marketing from
gonzaga university in 2010. as has
been the custom, he’d worked in the
woods during the summers from
when he was younger learning the
skills needed, and making good
money at the same time.
“i came back here,” Patrick explained, “after graduation and
worked because i had a couple online classes to finish. We were doing
helicopter logging, high production,
very busy. it was a full time job.”
“When that job was done,” he explained, the classes were completed
and, “i was done with school,” when
the same spirit for adventure in the
Janicki genes from at least his great
grandfather, his father’s going to
alaska, and uncle rob’s working in
texas, appeared again with Patrick.
“i wanted to take a little trip so i
went to Panama the summer of
2010, to see a bit more of the world.
“While down there saw the canal,
and their expansion of it, all the animals, the trees around the canal,
and the blasting for the canal. i appreciated the size and scale of what
they were doing.”
his initial intent had been follow
a college friend’s lead as a financial
advisor, selling insurance, investments and such, which paid handsomely, and upon returning from
the Panama excursion, secured the
licenses and started along that path.
but when a family friend asked
passion “...will you be here when
these policies pay out?” it struck a
cord.
