Training

Game of Logging instructor Ken Lallemont demonstrated safe tree felling techniques to fourteen participants at Cabela's in Dundee, MI.

The Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation and Development Council conducts a variety of training sessions for the area's wood industry professionals. The goal of these workshops is to expand local knowledge of:

  • Availability of urban forest resources
  • "Waste wood" recycling opportunities
  • Wood products manufacturing and marketing options
  • Natural resource-based business development strategies

Trainings are targeted to city foresters, tree service companies, city maintenance staff, park superintendents, road commission tree crews, arborists, city planners, economic developers, wood processors, and entrepreneurs.

Future training topics may include tree grading, log grading, log bucking and transportation, log storage, log quality, metal detection technologies, log processing systems, lumber recovery, and marketing. Additional or alternative training opportunities may be developed as needed.
