Bailey's Online

"The World's Largest Woodsman Supply Company."

Jim Bailey suffered a logging accident in 1975 that changed his life - for the better. Jim retired from logging to start a national woodsman supply business that sells at discounted prices.

"We didn't know that the odds of survival in business for more than two years were slim and that the odds that we would remain in business for twenty-five years were even greater, but we've made it. Wow!"
