Doug Tourtelotte excavation was founded in 1978 as a logging business that bought and sold timber. Doug selectively cut and cleared land in southern and central Maine for many landowners. In 1984 Doug expanded to excavation in conjunction with the logging business. Shortly thereafter the volume of excavation work exceeded the logging and it became the company’s primary business.
Doug Tourtelotte Excavation has remained a small professional run business that includes Doug’s wife Ann and son Adam. Adam joined during high school .. wife Kayla joined in 2014. Doug and Adam are the only two equipment operators, so the customers are always dealing with the owners directly.
