Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Like many of Tom Keene's Crescent Productions vehicles, Raw Timber is less of a western and more of a straight adventure film. Keene plays Corbin, a fearless forest ranger assigned to Tall Timber country. It is his job to make certain that the various lumber firms operating in his district do not completely strip the region of its trees. Naturally, a few of the lumberjacks refuse to play fair, obliging Corbin to settle some differences with his fist. Romance enters the picture in the form of pretty Dale (Peggy Keys), the imperiled half-owner of one of the lumber companies. Throughout most of Raw Timber, Tom Keene dispenses with his traditional cowboy garb in favor of the checkered jackets and fur caps of the North Woods.
