The Professional Loggers Program (PLP) is a voluntary certification program for New Hampshire's loggers. This program teaches basic silviculture, wildlife management, and improving forestland aesthetics. It also teaches forest professionals about laws that govern their work and regulations that need to be followed. Another very important aspect of this course is safety. Every participant receives instruction in basic first aid, CPR, AED and techniques for operating safely and productively.
