In Woods Demo Day a Great Success!
Over 140 people attended the first In-Woods equipment demonstration day at SUNY Morrisville on October 20th. CJ Logging, Link Belt Equipment, TigerCat and Propac all joined with ESFPA and NYLT to put nearly $6 million of equipment in active demonstration, along with updates on tier 4 engines. We expect to build upon this for future educational days. So, if you missed it...don't worry! You'll have your chance in the future.

New Book Available for Children: Why Would Anyone Cut a Tree Down Book?
While giving presentations about trees, the author, a USDA Forest Service employee, noticed that students had the knowledge of the benefits and products that trees provide. On the other hand, the author was surprised when students blurted out that you can never cut a tree down. To bridge this gap in knowledge and understanding, he wrote this book.
