FRA’s Appalachian Region, and STIHL Incorporated, honored Sam Trott of Shelbyville, Tennessee as the Region’s 2013 Outstanding Logger on September 26 at the Region’s Awards Dinner in Norton, Virginia. A third-generation logger, Sam, along with his wife, Jennifer, have branched into sawmilling, with their adult children much involved in both operations. The selection team made special note of:
• the firm’s high reputation locally,
• the strong emphasis on careful merchandising,
• the outstanding safety record, and
• involvement in local government and promotion of logging and sawmilling in several venues.
