Big Timber was another in a series of medium-budget dramas co-produced by actor Roddy McDowall for Monogram. McDowall himself stars as Jimmy, a novice tree surgeon who takes a manual-labor job at a logging camp. Jimmy develops into a fairly competent logger, but his efforts are sabotaged by a jealous rival. Just when all seems lost, Jimmy redeems himself during a rousing climax, wherein the lumber camp is endangered by a "log avalanche". This time, Roddy McDowall has two leading ladies, Miss Jeff Donnell and Lyn Thomas. More than one reviewer has cited the resemblance between Timber and the earlier self-produced McDowall vehicle Tuna Clipper.
