07 Logs ready For transport from field

Sign in to follow this  

When the logs have been processed they are stacked in the field, ready to be loaded onto a log truck for transport to the mill. Log trucks have become quite advanced complete with weight indicators in the cab to let the driver know what each axle weighs as the truck is loaded. Once loaded, the operator is responsible for tying down the load with chains. After a drive down the logging road the driver will stop and tighten the chains again before entering the public road system. Logs are tagged in the field to identify where they came from. The state of Washington has strict regulations on labeling logs to establish ownership. Much of the land that is logged is under state ownership and management.
