WHAT IS A CATCHMARK?

A symbol of quality historically used by loggers, catchmark refers to the “branding” at the end of cut logs to ensure easy ownership identification of high-quality timber. Catchmarks were especially critical when multiple logging companies were cutting timber in the same forest and floating logs downriver for sorting and distribution to different mills.

In the early days of logging, catchmarks were cut into logs by axe or pounded in using branding hammers. Catchmarks are still in use today but may be in the form of barcodes or other identification symbols.
