Loggers Gather For OLC Show

Article by Dan Shell, Managing Editor, Timber Harvesting March/April 2023

EUGENE, Oregon – Loggers across the Pacific Northwest and plenty of points farther away made the trip to Eugene the last weekend of February for the 85th Oregon Logging Conference. The event included everything every logger needs (outside of a better cut-and-haul rate!) when it comes to equipment and tools for getting the job done, including not only the very latest in high performance timber harvesting equipment and machinery, but also the leading edge technology behind it driving production and efficiency gains.

Visitors to the show also attended multiple seminars and presentations on technology and business management to make more informed decisions about their businesses and their role in the industry. And along with officials activities there’s always plenty of time for networking and fellowship with fellow loggers. Here are some of the scenes and events from this year’s Oregon Logging Conference.
