The students were truly impressed by the machine work and dedication involved within our industry. Their interest level exceeded every expectation and the questions continued to pour in. Accompanied by foresters Jack Thomas and Logger Hubbard, we encouraged their enthusiasm and enjoyed great discussions about forestry. These young adults are great role models for the next generation. They understand that it takes commitment, long hours, and hard work to be successful. This group has come from a long line of hard work; We were fascinated to discover that we had third, fourth, and fifth generation farmers upon us.
As we concluded the tour, we were all in agreement that logging is a lot like farming. We are true stewards of the forest and the resources that benefit all of us on this earth!
