This month, SLT is focusing on the future of logging with feature stories profiling three of the bright young men taking up the mantle for the next generation. South Carolina’s Rick Bennett and Louisiana’s Thomas Johnson both grew up around longtime logging families, but only just started their own companies last year. Meanwhile, Tennessee’s Zachary Comer has a similar multigenerational timber pedigree but has been on his own a little longer, since 2016. It’s a difficult time to start logging, but these three are meeting the challenge.
