Texas Pro Logger Training Begins April 9

Date:

The Texas Pro Logger Training, hosted by the Texas Forestry Association (TFA) will begin April 9, 2015, at the Texas Forestry Service Cudlipp Training Center and Angelina College Community Services Center in Lufkin, Texas.

The workshops are designed to promote sustainable forestry among those in the logging industry, including logging contractors as well as foremen and foresters. Sessions will begin Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 1 p.m. and will last through the afternoon on Saturday, April 11, 2015.

Topics include Best Management Practices, Business Management, Wildlife, Special Sites, Endangered Species, and ends with a safety training session, allowing those who hold the Pro Logger status to maintain safety recertification.

Cost for the training is $40 per person per workshop, or a total of $160 for the entire weekend. Seating is limited and early registration is required. To find out how to register, please visit the TFA website at texasforestry.org or call 936-632-8733.

In order to receive designation as a Texas Pro Logger, all four courses must be attended and continuing education must be taken yearly to maintain that status.

The training is sponsored by the State Implementation Committee, the TFA, Texas A&M Forest Service and the Texas Logging Council, and exists to promote forest stewardship through logger training, landowner outreach and public awareness.
