On a single night, gusts of wind reaching up to 120 mph knocked down, uprooted and snapped over 14 million trees. The storm was named Vaia.
A disaster of unprecedented proportions that need to be remedied as soon as possible to prevent unthinkable environmental and financial damage.
Only highly qualified lumberjacks are capable of taking on such a risky job. They must face a challenge that requires exceptional skills and physical force, but that can also be transformed into a major money-making opportunity.
To win an auction and invest millions of euro into new machinery to do one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: this is the task of four teams of lumberjacks who have been called in to clear the forest of millions of cubic meters of fallen trees. There will be forest trails to be reconstructed and cableways to be set up, before it's possible to recover the thousands of tree trunks, remove their branches and transport them down the mountains to be transformed into hard cash. The effort, the hitches and the tension inside the various teams are the narrative mechanisms for the series.
Hard work, fatigue, constant danger and a race against time as well as unforeseen events to turn a maximum profit: this is UNDERCUT - wooden treasure.
