BURKEVILLE, Texas – For Mike and Andrea Smith, both 46, their fate was decided when Mike was just five years old. See, Mr. Smith was a pulpwood mechanic and young Mike would often follow him around to the logging woods to work. There, Mike was exposed to logging and quickly found his path in life. Fast-forward to high school, and Mike was still obsessed with logging. He started his own company in 1994.
