Kevin and his family are back. This time their business is on the line. Will it survive?
Netflix reality series Big Timber season 2 was released on the streaming service on July 13, 2022.
Big Timber Season 2 is now available to watch on Netflix. This reality TV show teaches viewers about the logging industry. In season one we followed sawmill owner, Kevin Wenstob, his family, and his kooky crew as they collect and transport lumber on Vancouver Island, Canada. You’ll be happy to know that season two is exactly the same, but with more drama, higher stakes, and on water. There is also a cute new member of the team, a German Shepherd puppy.
The first season has 10 episodes, which originally premiered on the History Channel back in 2020. The second season has 8 episodes and premiered back in 2021. It’s certainly got enough fans to warrant being on Netflix’s streaming service as this quirky family and their extreme business are fun and scary to watch.
In the first episode we quickly learn that Kevin has been hit with a huge $1,000,000 fine from last season (sounds completely unjust but I won’t get into the American systems) and whilst he’s appealing that fine, he needs to make the money in case he has to pay it. High in the mountains, they struck wood gold by discovering cedar wood. His aim is to get as much as he can as cedar fetches a heavy amount of money and his small business has that monopoly right now. As they head up the mountain they discover that the snow has not yet melted and they cannot safely lumber the wood in those extreme conditions. Estimating it will take months for the snow to melt, Kevin can’t wait. They need to lumber and make the money now otherwise their business will be shut down.
Kevin, being a crazy resourceful guy, collects and builds boats, so what does he do? He goes to the water to collect fallen, broken logs from the water. Taking their industry to the seas. This clear-up is a way he can make money and save his business.
The stakes are high, with high risk and high reward at play making this an action-filled, exciting season. If you were a fan of season one you will not be disappointed. Series like this are important as they show the behind-the-scenes of things we have in our daily lives, such as paper, but we have no idea how and where it comes from. Educational, informative, and conversation-provoking, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys watching the adventurous hardships that are real life. Like my previous review, It’s like Ice-road Truckers and Below Deck but with wood, and now water.
