Small-scale Logging Field Day: September 19, 2009, Brainerd. Download complete event details (PDF)
Small-scale logging is a system and a range of equipment that increases logging flexibility and extends production seasons. Small-scale logging is designed for harvesting operations where maneuverability is a primary concern. It is not logging small trees and/or small volumes.
Whether you are a logger, forester, woodland owner, or other land manager, this field day will show you how to maximize profitability through the use of small-scale logging and harvesting equipment, using efficient and safe techniques.
From tree to finished product is the main theme of this event, with a focus on the private landowner.
