Company History

Herbert C. Haynes began working in the Maine woods when he was young, helping his father with the family’s logging and trucking business. Although he didn’t have a formal education in forestry, he knew how to cruise timber and put crews to work harvesting the wood.

At the age of 15, Herbert C. Haynes began loading trucks by hand, then driving the load to market. When he started working in the woods, horses provided the power to skid the logs. In the 1960s, skidders changed the way the wood was moved.

In 1963, he formed H.C. Haynes Inc. The company operates from an office in Winn, Maine, employing many people in various locations in New England and Canada.

Although Herb has passed away, his family still operates the business. Son Jay is the company’s president. Daughter Ginger Maxwell and her sister Barbara French work in the office. From the beginning, H.C. Haynes has been a family-run company that understands the needs of local foresters. To this day, the team at H.C. Haynes is dedicated to the success of local woodlot owners and the forestry industry of Eastern Canada.
