Description: A logging job is one of the most difficult types of business to manage efficiently. In practically everything the logger does he is compelled to make a choice between several methods of operation and types of equipment. The conditions under which he works are constantly changing, particularly when he is forced to move fairly often from one timber tract to another. But even on different portions of the same tract conditions can change; the equipment and method of logging may no longer be suitable, and costs may go up out of sight. Many logging operators go broke because they do not recognize such changes and adapt their operations to them. Others are notably successful because they do.
