Lone Rock Timber Management offered a logging operation tour to SAF members Monday March 20 with Brennan Garrelts as our host. Lone Rock Timber Management Co. has contracted with Krume Logging of Castle Rock, WA to have a tethered feller-buncher cut and bunch traditional handfelled yarder ground on slopes greater than 70%. The practice of tethered cutting is starting to gain traction in Southwest Oregon for both landowners and operators. New Zealand and British Columbia have already begun the transition to less handfalling and more tethered cutting and have seen huge gains in logging productivity and safety. It was a terrific tour. Thank you Brennan and Lone Rock Timber! A video is available here:
