Episode 6: Movin' Some Green with James River Equipment

March 30, 2018 1:19 PM | Melissa Miller Haley (Administrator)

Grab your hard hat, safety glasses, some good boots and let’s get on the road! This visit with James River Equipment focuses on their Forestry division and looks at logging machines, service, parts and the process on-site.


Trees are a crop and a good logger knows how and when to harvest. It’s a long-term kind of business – the machines are an investment and, once cut and fertilized, a site will not be visited again for many years. The first visit, around year 7, provides a select cut for things like pulp wood (i.e. tissues, paper, fuel). Another visit around years 10-15 allow for a few more specialty cuts. Then, finally in years 20-25, another full harvest produces tree-length logs that are sent to sawmills.

Since this work certainly requires the right tools, our video also highlights the incredible work done at JRE’s home base in Hanover. A facility tour reveals more big machines, lots of John Deere green, their replacement pieces, torches and lifts wielded by technicians.

On the lighter side, because this heavy vlog visit needs a little fun, we have a coffee break with JRE leaders and the ladies test out the logging trucks. 

Join our chamber group – Nancy Coggin, Melissa Miller, Amanda Porch, Marianne Powell and Justin Williams – as we branch out into a new (to us) industry. Thanks again to James River Equipment for showing us what it looks like behind the green. Let’s go!

      When losing your weight you need to be considerate of some points. Just food change will do you no good, you must also exercise. Obese people need to be careful of the intensity of exercise that they do as https://pets-corral.com/ exercise can cause some health risks. You must start with low frequency of exercises which should be increased gradually over time.

    Another tip, on the off chance that you are shooting bunches at a School Prom or Corporate occasion, take a stepladder! In the event that you visit https://www.essaywritingservicesreviews.com/bestcustomessay-review/ and get above them and kill it changes the edges and stops the individuals at the front looking a lot bigger than those at the back.
