    The Twin Falls Logging Company was a subsidiary of the Weyerhaeuser Timber Company formed in response to the 1902 Yacolt Burn in southwestern Washington. Weyerhaeuser owned several tracts of timber in 1902 when the fire struck. The Twin Falls Logging Company was formed in order to salvage the burnt timber, along with the Lake River Boom Company. In 1904, the concern would become named the Clark County Timber Company, with the Twin Falls Logging Company serving as the operating arm and the Lake River Boom Company serving as the party responsible for transporting logs from the railroad to the mills in Portland, Oregon.
