Forest Harvesting in Virginia: Characteristics of Virginia's Logging Operations
This publication is based on a 2009 survey of Virginia loggers and provides a snapshot of logging operations across the state. The goal is to provide insight into the basic functions of a forest harvesting operation in Virginia, and to provide specific operational details related to the characteristics and production levels of Virginia's logging businesses. It provides introductory information for those not familiar with forest harvesting operations, as well as specific results of the logger survey and more detailed comparisons of logging across the Commonwealth.
