Re: Logging isn't easy
I will tell you straight up, theres nothing in it for the forester. Although alot of them have a genuine concern for doing whats right, alot of them also are looking at the dollars for them, thats why they are in business. You are only kidding yourself if you turn a blind eye to that. The stuff you want to cut is non-profitable to a logger or a forester. Those species are basically worthless, then factor in 50 mile round trips to your pulp mill with $4 per gallon diesel trucks. You should quickly get the picture. I'm in business to make money also, but I am just plain honest with people. I have helped quite a few members here with consultation, even once for a court case. If you asked me to do the job, I would do it on a split, with me getting 10% more than you because I have to move it and sell it. Thats the way its done with an honest logger, when dealing with non-valueable species.
