Loggers play a vital role in the health and well-being of forests and timber communities and require special knowledge and skills to provide and protect wood, wildlife, water, and recreational opportunities. The annual Loggers Workshop provides an educational opportunity to interact with other forestry professionals and industry leaders to discuss topics of emerging significance, so that forests continue to be a source of goods and benefits to the owner and to society.
The Northeast Loggers Workshop can be taken for 8 WCLA continued education credits.
