The Pacific Logging Congress “Live in the Woods” show to be held September 25-27, 2014, isn’t just for loggers.
The event, which will take place at the Port Blakely Tree Farms in Molalla, Ore., is expected to host as many as 2,000 elementary school children and teachers from the Portland area and southwest Washington.
“Education is our top priority,” said PLC’s 2014 President Duane Evans, a Vice President of Timberlands for Port Blakely Tree Farms.
The students and teachers will view the safest and most environmentally advanced logging methods available. Each individual is supplied with a hard hat and each group of students is guided by a professional forester. Bus transportation will be paid by Oregon Forest Resources Institute, Portland, Oregon and the Pacific Forest Foundation.
Scandinavian forestry machine
At the 2014 Pacific Logging Congress, live in the woods show, September 25-27, you’ll have the chance to see the newest and the best forestry machines in their element. Also, manufacturers will be on hand to answer any questions.
It’s hard to imagine that these enormous machines started out as just an idea. Here are a couple futuristic ideas that you won’t see today, but who knows about tomorrow.
• The Scandinavian ATL’s Framtidens Skogsmaskin
• John Deere’s Walking Harvester
See you in September.
