Professional Loggers Program
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.
Certified loggers will have the basic understanding and knowledge necessary to improve their working relationship with New Hampshire’s forestry community
Landowners need to also be aware that most large insurers require that loggers and/or foresters working on their land be certified. One of the benefits of an NHTOA membership is access to our database of certified professionals.
To learn more about the New Hampshire Professional Loggers Program and its governing entity, the New Hampshire Timber Harvesting Council (NHTHC), contact Cheri Birch, Program Director at the NHTOA.
