Logging with Horses


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It’s back to the future for one environmentally-minded logging operation near Ashland. This timber owner cuts trees selectively to improve the health of the forest. He uses horses to haul out the logs because they have less impact on the land than heavy equipment.

First Broadcast: 1990
