Comments on Government Contracts :
Riding High has completed many tasks. Working in Idaho for the U. S. F. S under the supervision of Kevin Naffin located in the Sandpoint N.F. District. On this project we also contracted and designed a fence 8’ high to encompass the Grouse Creek Seed Orchard Site. Our job for the Forest Service at that time was to create a seed orchard site for a white pine experimental station. We have obliterated many miles of Forest Service road in Noxon area for the Three Rivers District. We have installed many CMP’s for Eureka Forest Service under the supervision of Jenifer Brady and Ray Wells. Riding High has completed excavator and dozer piling projects for the D.N.R.C for Rick Komenda at the Stillwater Station. We are diverse in most any field in the horizontal construction area.
