Professional Logging Manager Program

Keith Nichols, Nichols Dozier Service
The Professional Logging Manager Program was held on Friday, August 12th, at the American Legion Hall in Double Springs. The turnout of loggers and foresters was excellent with 62 paid participants and 24 speakers, exhibitors, and volunteers. Loggers received 6.0 Professional Logging Manager (PLM) Continuing Education Units (CEU's). Foresters could also receive CEU's for attending the program. The program focused on Best Management Practices in Forestry, Helicopter Landing Zone Procedures, Environmental Emergencies, and Invasive Species. Keith Nichols conducted a live waterbar construction demonstration on-site.  Air Evac landed their medical transport helicopter so participants could look at the aircraft and meet the crew.  There were also exhibits on Cogongrass, Quail Restoration, Sunsafety and Staying Hydrated, the Rock Creek Watershed Management Project, and Air Evac.
