Job Description

Logging is a very dangerous job to have. Loggers use many pieces of equipment. Such as: chainsaws, axes, wedges, skidders, tractor trailers, knuckle-boom, and many others. Loggers clear trees for many purposes. Clear cuts are used for fields, vineyards, places to build a new house, and many other purposes. A selective cut is when a logger selects specific trees for the purpose of selling the tree to a mill to be used for making boards. Loggers leave or replant small trees after the logging is done.
