PostagePAIDPerMit no. 178saLeM, orLoggersWorLdPubLications4206 JacksonHWy.cHeHaLis, Wa 98532-8425After 50 Plus Years of covering storiesfor and about loggers, this is the last edition.See From the Stumpon Page 2 of Loggers Worldfirst the bad news: after 50 years and ninemonths, this is the final edition of LoggersWorld, and after 40 years, the final edition of Logtrucker. (there is always the remote chance ofmoving to strictly electronic distribution (thoughvery remote), and if that comes to pass it wouldbe as either of these established names.)the reason is simple: economics. from the fi-nancial collapse we all suffered through in 2008,we all knew it would be a rough ride, whichwould require reserves to withstand the storm,which weve used. from the end of 2008 wedheard several economists predict this recessionwould be like nothing any of us (under 70 or 80years of age) had ever seen before with a sharpnose dive of revenues and a Very gradual andprolonged recovery, in distinct contrast to whatwed seen in the past seven decades (steep de-clines followed by a similarly steep improvement).this would drag on.over that span, a lot of logging and truckingcompanies have closed their doors, many have re-sized their companies, a number of companiessupporting and supplying loggers has shrunk dra-matically. the supply chain is rebuilding but stillnot at 100% as yet (though getting closer eachday), and there has been considerable consolida-tion amongst many businesses and manufactur-ers as well, all something weve all seen as well.and while business has suffered, the worstthrashing has occurred throughout rural americawhere the economy was established on naturalresources, and where in the Western unitedstates, the change in public policy and lack ofclarity in the laws governing public lands, essen-tially reversing decades of multiple-use manage-ment. every time we hear a pundit or politicianprattle on about creating jobs and creating op-portunity they demonstrate how irrelevant thattalk is given the policies they sponsor, and the on-going destruction of opportunity, which hasopened the braindrain spigot from ru-ral america to thecities.Weve passedthrough that, burnedthrough a lot of cashand reserves to get tothis point, and al-though Washingtond.c. tells us the reces-sion ended a few yearsago, its crystal clear(and not terribly surprising) that their multiplepress releases bear little resemblance to the con-ditions in non-urban america. in passing through this calamity the phraselong gradual, has certainly held very true. beginning in 2013 the logging world has had aconsiderable uptick in demand and business, inno small part due to their being fewer loggers andfewer logging contractors. that should bode wellfor business, and virtually everyone we talk withconfirm things have improved. Last year was thebest for most since 2007, and this year is comingin even better. but that did not significantlytrickle down to us.Loggers World Publications has seen this grad-ual improvement as well, but it remains short ofincreased costs accelerating at a more rapid pace,and a lot of uncertainty for at least another threeyears if not longer. Press costs, mailing, fuel, ben-efits all rising. However the key problems are thesame many businesses face... uncertainty, alengthy economic downturn, lengthy drain on re-serves, time is moving along and there will be atleast another three years of uncertainty in frontof us, primarily from both federal and state gov-ernments. for the continued risks there is a verylimited reward in sight.My late wife susan and i have owned LoggersWorld just over half of its life. its been a wonder-ful ride, meeting and getting to know our indus-try, being allowed to see and meet the contrac-tors, crews, witness the innovation, tenacity,heart and grit of the logging world. Weve trav-eled all over the country and parts of the worldincluding canada, finland, germany and france,finding the mindset and attitude being the samefor loggers anywhere in the world.Weve witnessed first-hand the cultural cleans-ing of the timber wars starting in the late 80s, thedecline of our federal forests and the surroundingcommunities.on the positive side of the ledger, and contraryto what the media tells the world, loggings re-silience, creativity and determination has con-stantly flexed, changed, and adapted to the rapid-ly changing public policy. its ironic that in thesame time frame, the medias inability to adaptand brought many newspapers, magazines andelectronic media to their knees, a mere ghost oftheir former selves. When the paradigms shifted,and the internet arrived, print in general wasfirmly imbedded in 1950.i love this industry and the vast wealth of thepersonalities within it, virtually all of whom iconsider friends. ive always been at home wher-ever ive landed in logging, being welcomed withopen arms, and sharing your crew, company,thinking and incredible innovation and approach-es to real-world logging issues being solved withgreat creativity and genuine insight. its not justthe business, however, it is the attitude and drivethat separates our numbers from the populationas a whole.Weve been blessed with terrific crews in ourtenure: the additional 20 years of rigging shackcolumns from finley; kevin core, whos been partof Loggers World a year longer than me, a solidcolleague, and good friend who most have talkedwith for advertising the past 26 years... there isnone better; Jim Holding, long time ad managerfor Log trucker; many writers including billPalmroth, Myron Metcalf, otto oja, darin burt,Jerry capps to name a few. and weve had sever-al office managers as well, longest term was JeanHays (finleys wife), the heart of Loggers Worldfrom the start in 64 until early in 1990, when mybeloved wife and partner susan took over thereigns until her passing in 2006, then Julie clark,and finally Holly Larson. as occurs in logging, thecompany is the people, and weve been blessedwith a fine crew.Logging will, as finley held from his first is-sue, survive even these hard times. Were an in-dustry of survivors and innovators, and thoseforests are only turned into cash when the treesare horizontal, and we do that better than anyloggers in the world.its been an honor serving all of you the past 50years, and my past 25 years.

Wed de-fine industry capacity as, can indus-try respond to new market de-mands?Leading off was Michael Phillips(Hampton affiliates), outlining hiscompanys view of emerging mar-kets following the past six years.Production peaked in 2005 and bot-tomed in 2009, with a 50% drop inthe north american market. andwhile markets are improving, ... itsstill about 40% of what (production)was when things were going well.on the positive side, ...every-thing that relates to wood consump-tion is going up, said Phillips.However the past six years, andtimes, have changed. todays notlike it was yesterday, Phillips said.the mill and work force is gone,,and todays mill is far more efficient,and you spend a good deal more torebuild or start a mill.the cost to reinstall capacity isalmost ludicrous given the availabil-ity of timber, and personnel,Phillips stated, then noted relatingto the logging industry, ... todaystill doesnt have a lot of certainty toit, then added of logging contrac-tors, ... how can you pay yourselfback? How do you make that invest-ment if you arent going to be work-ing full time? He then stated, ...wethink there arent enough loggers toput on the ground to supply thetrees.When asked of industrys reactionshould the predicted logger shortagematerialize, Phillips felt ...the nextstep will be to form collaborativepartnerships, and help with the fi-nancing of it. other companies aresaying take an appropriate ap-proach; keep a cash flow going fortheir main loggers so they can sur-vive.While the market outlook overallis very good, he noted, ... lumberprices could be very unstable andexperience very volatile swings overthe next three years. and the longterm outlook Phillips was prettyclear in saying in the near future, !DUKESPARTS & EQUIPMENT509-952-9223Parting Cat 518Parting Denharco 3500 Cat 525 - Parting OutCat 330 LL, $$57,000Cat 518 &$ %#&"Nice MachineYoungGrapple,%$ $541-672-1989 503-910-3774 541-729-9845Eugene / Roseburg LocationsLOCALLY OWNED12 to 18 Clearance - Ball / PintleTHOmAs lEEDsPacific lumber and shippingNORm sCHAAFmerrill &Ring, Inc.logger safety InitiativeRound Tablen circle 21 on inquiry card Pg. 30 n circle 20 on inquiry card Pg. 30LOggERSwORLDJUNE2014212169THOlympic LC(continued from Page 20)(continued on Page 22)See 69THOlympic LC...it will be a very good to be in thelumber and in the logging business.tom Leeds (Pacific Lumber andshipping) spoke on export markets,and noted the success of newZealands approach to at least onephase of log efficiencies, which in-cludes: covered buildings for unload-ing, computerized scanning whilescaling, and tracking trucks andwho owns the load, and where theload goes. i think for us to exist (inexports) we have to adopt the newZealand model of exporting.rick LaMont (timberland ap-praisal, inc.) repeated some of theearlier speakers historic observa-tions on the downtown and slow re-covery noting that the sluggish re-covery is connected to housing notrebounding as quickly as all hadhoped. He noted in particular that,...its much harder for this genera-tion to get into the housing market,due to this lagging economy, slowjob growth, etc.don taylor (sustainable resourcesystems) outlined key points of asupply chain analysis he presentedon industry capacity. He outlined issues surfacing dur-ing the recession: relationshipdamage between the mills and thelogging contractors; the resultinglogging capacity disinvestment; andproductivity leakage (avoidable loss-es). and the resulting convergenceof vectors including: equipment re-placement delays; supplier lowstumpage inventory; lack of firmcommitments, explaining, ...it couldhave been handled better; financ-ing restrictions; and ...a weakeninglogging-trucking infrastructure.it takes a billion dollars a year tomaintain the logging capacity wehave now, said taylor adding that,the prices of equipment continuedto increase during the recession.the bottom line, said taylor,the us forest industry needs totake full advantage of our economicrecovery. both suppliers and con-sumer mills need to work intention-ally and cooperatively together tomake sure that no market share islost outside the us borders, and se-nior levels of the u.s. forest indus-try need to be fully aware of thesupply chain challenge that is un-precedented.friday mornings firstroundtable included West romberg(campbell global), Mike Janicki(Janicki Logging) and gordy iverson(timbertech) talking about the longterm results of forest thinnings fromreviewing yields from treated foreststo individual loggers and forestersexperience on lands theyd thinnedyears ago. the hard data and expe-rience of those presenting demon-strated the success of the treat-ments in yielding more wood andfiber than would have been broughtout without thinning. bill Hermann (Hermann bros.)summarized the roundtable well inhis comments, in saying that thethinning option is about, the bestreturn for our investment over time.if you let the bean counters deter-mine how you grow your forestyoure going to always get whatyouve always gotten. When wedthinned for so many years, a lot ofthat wood was chip n saw, not justpulp. you can almost get double thefiber off your tree farm (by thin-ning). by the end of the day, itsabout the board feet and how manyboards, or tons of paper, you can getoff that acre.the final presentation was on theLoggers safety initiative (Lsi) givenby co-chair norm schaff (Merrillring). He outlined the programsprogress to date, and two 10% re-ductions available to participants,the first upon joining and commit-ting to the program, the second 10%on the successful completion of athird party audit to ...help usknow were doing the right job.Most within the open discussionwere supportive of the program, andare enrolled in it.

CONTINUING TO GAIN TRACTIONBRIAN NElsONAlC PresidentCornell, michiganin mid-March, fox news head-lined a story out of Wyoming thatthe environmental Protectionagency (ePa) had targeted a fortbridger (population 345) welder forviolating the clean Water act andthreatened to fine him $75,000-a-day unless he restored a wetland healtered without a permit and there-fore contrary to federal law. andyJohnson-who owns eight acres inuinta county in southwesternWyoming on which he runs horsesand watches his three daughtersplay-says the stock pond he built,filled with crystal-clear water, andused to create brook and browntrout and duck and geese habitat,was permitted by the Wyomingstate engineers office.the timing could not have beenworse. Wyoming was still fumingover the ePas december 2013 de-cision to place a million acres, in-cluding the town of riverton (popu-lation 10,000), inside the Wind riv-er indian reservation. in doing so,the ePa ignored 110 years of histo-ry and state, federal, and u.s.supreme court rulings. Moreover,the ePa was a month away from is-suing new regulations to give iteven more authority over privateland like that owned by Johnson bybroadening the definition of watersof the united states. Wyomings republican senatorsdemanded the ePa withdraw thecompliance order, which they la-beled, a draconian edict of a heavy-handed bureaucracy that putseach and every landownerthroughout the country in fear.Johnson for his part did not backdown. i have not paid them adime nor will i.... if you need tostand up and fight, you do it. Hecan draw solace from anotherWyomingite who stood up, foughtthe ePa, and won.in 2005, david Hamilton of Wor-land (population 5,500), in north-central Wyoming, cleaned out an ir-rigation ditch on his 400 acre farm.Johnson and his wife may have puttheir blood, sweat and tears into[their] dream of a stock pond, butHamilton spent $30,000 haulingaway discarded cars, broken appli-ances, and assorted debris thatlined the ditch to foil erosion andmaking other agricultural improve-ments. the project was a success,but the ePa disagreed. in 2007, itshowed up on the farm and in 2010sued Hamilton in federal court.the ePa claimed Hamilton de-stroyed 8.8 acres of wetlands,which is an impossibility given thatWorland has the least rainfall inWyoming-less than 8 inches a year.facts did not matter to the ePa; in-stead, it relied on the nationalWetlands inventory-prepared bythe u.s. fish and Wildlife serviceusing google earth satellite im-ages-to target Hamilton and to tallywetlands damaged. unfortunately,when Hamiltons attorney, HarrietM. Hageman, challenged the ePa,the district court ruled that slickcreek, which does not exist havingbeen replaced by Hamiltons irriga-tion ditch, is navigable waters ofthe united states, as a matter oflaw.Worse rulings were to come.Hagemans proffers of evidence thatHamiltons work had improved theenvironment, that the ePa wasseeking to extort nearly a milliondollars from her client, and that theePas investigation was shoddyand the basis for its lawsuit flawedand insupportable all were rejectedas unduly prejudicial. the jurynever learned that Hamilton hadreduced sediment into the big Hornriver, decreased water use on theproperty, and reduced the release ofchemicals off the land, and in theprocess created a beautiful andwell-managed farm that produces avariety of crops and sustains stockgrazing.it did not matter. after a twoweek trial, the jury returned afteronly 140 minutes, which included ameal and a walk, to rule for Hamil-ton. His were dredge or fill activi-ties, it held, exempt from federalpermitting as normal farming andranching activities, including up-land soil and water conservation.Moreover, the jury found thatslick creek is a man-made irriga-tion ditch and exempt from federallaw.

Prof bengtsson, 79, said it wasutterly unacceptable to adviseagainst publishing a paper on thepolitical grounds.He said: it is an indication of howscience is gradually being influencedby political views. the reality hasntbeen keeping up with the [comput-er] models.if people are proposing to do ma-jor changes to the worlds economicsystem we must have much moresolid information.next year the un hopes to brokeran international agreement on re-ducing greenhouse gas emissions, areplacement for the kyoto Protocolwhich would impose legally bindingtargets on every country.the last attempt, at the copen-hagen conference in 2009, ended indisaster, with recriminations flyingand all chances of a deal in tatters.the Paris conference in december2015 is thought by many politiciansto be the last realistic chance for adeal to be made if disastrous climatechange is to be averted.a controversy at this stage risksputting the science which underpinsthe negotiations at doubt, somethingmany - not least politicians inbritain and the us - will be keen toavoid.the publisher of the environmen-tal research Letters journal lastnight said Professor bengtssons pa-per had been rejected because it con-tained errors and did not sufficient-ly advance the science.a spokesman for ioP Publishingsaid: the paper, co-authored byLennart bengtsson, was originallysubmitted to environmental re-search Letters as a research Letter.this was peer-reviewed by twoindependent reviewers, who report-ed that the paper contained errorsand did not provide a significant ad-vancement in the field, and there-fore failed to meet the journals re-quired acceptance criteria.as a consequence, the indepen-dent reviewers recommended thatthe paper should not be published inthe journal which led to the final ed-itorial decision to reject the paper.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/newsLOggERSwORLDJUNE20142929Roundup(continued from Page 28) )2(:3850%'/%2(#,-7)3530354,373%2(%()6'5-47-323*9,%7:38%5)6)00-2+75:73/))4 -79-7,-2935(6 -7)14)5%(%2(9);0048&0-6, -7 -2 7,) ,39 )00 *35 .867 %-0 35)1%-0 73 03+9350(%30'31:385 -2*351%7-32 733++)56#350( %'/6329:,),%0-6#)%(0-2)-67,3*7,)1327,45)'))(-2+48&0-'%7-32SHOW AND SELL35( #+ ,0$++ 2$/# / -' !**/ . -1$ *4 *) ' **-#$)" .'$"#/$)" %73+3%()5 2 %0./0) --.2*-&$)"$'4-0)."- /%00!-1&)50-2)331)0-1&)5- )/) 2**(**(-*'' -. .2$)"**((*/*-.)
