Timbersports have come a long way since 1985 when its first broadcast was from a field in Wisconsin with one camera. The lumberjack event has grown to house full-out production crews and mega stages, and this weekend Wasaga Beach is the backdrop.

The star of the 2018 STIHL Timbersports Canadian Championship is current World Champion Stirling Hart.

Hart is looking forward to battling it out for the Canadian crown.

“It’s going to be fun, we have the beach, the breeze and that heat to deal with.”  

The top 40 Canadian athletes will battle it out in for the title of Canadian Champion in the Pro Men’s, Pro Women’s and Rookie Divisions.

Hart and current reigning Canadian Champion Mitch Hewitt highlight the event, which features the Springboard Chop, Underhand Chop, STIHL Stock Saw, Standing Block Chop, Single Buck and Hot Saw. Event Schedule

What did the tree say to the lumberjack as he was going home? What a re-leaf.
