The DNR conducted a survey of loggers, truckers, timber brokers and dealers. Responses were due by September 30, 2016.
A survey of Michigan loggers, truckers, timber brokers and dealers was conducted through the end of 2015 to identify how many timber producers are in business, what services they provided, and how much wood they can produce and haul. Information was sought on timber producers’ workforce training needs, and how many new employees each company expects to hire in the next year. Information from the survey may be used to update the Forest Products Industry Directory.
