Woods to Mill
FRA members occasionally express frustration with the growing trend of local governments (counties, townships, parishes) enacting ordinances that restrict truck weights and require road bonding for timber harvesting operations.
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a 2018 election briefing hosted by BIPAC, the organization FRA uses for grassroots outreach.
Registration is now live for the FRA 2018 Lake States Fall Meeting, taking place this year September 17-19 in Wausau, WI.
Chris Terry, an FRA member and the owner of Terry Logging, Inc. in Morehead, Kentucky, had a high-school ambition to someday be the president of his own logging company. He began cutting and selling firewood at age 16, moved onto pine posts at 18, and then to logging.
Logging is dangerous work. Everyone in the forest products industry knows that, but being in and around logging all the time, it is sometimes easy to not keep this front of mind.
The Western Region of FRA has a solid tradition of offering two regional meetings each year. The spring event took place recently in beautiful Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia.
