Not sure if I'm posting this in the right thread but...

I'm looking for good forestry sayings.  I'm making a T shirt for our shop and wanted some ideas.  Some of my favorites are:

-Cut it back.  Burn it black.  Grow it back.
-Log hard for healthy forests!
-Earth First!  We'll log other planets later   :D


What are you're favorites?

Now we are logging with steel. My boss used that when things were going well, he was referring to long lines.

Logging: two moonlight drives and a picnic in the woods every day.

Had a boss that used the phrase "I would not slam a ****house door that hard"  Not sure that would go over well on a T shirt though.

Logo is shaping up to look like this... I'll change the flagging to fit the words and might replace the compass with a relaskop or something.

I'm not what I'd consider a "tree hugger", but my first impression with the logo shown comes across as "cut and burn, and spray what may survive".. leaving just a stump and some blue flagging.

Don't know if that is what you want to convey to others outside of your shop, and it may be that my first impression is quite wrong.  Just passing it on, for whatever it might be worth.

Seems a softer side, such as nursing small seedlings beside the stump, or something to be happy about when using the tools of your trade, would be good promotion of your trade.

I'm kind of leaning towards Beentheres' approach on this and maybe have a pic of 3 generations. One on a saw, one on a skidder and the last re-planting. I know in small communities millwork and logging was quite often 2-3 generation deals.
Maybe a banner saying, "Don't worry, we got this". That's a saying I've used all my life. Whether it was getting someones' back that was played out, hung over or new to the game or just racing at some task at hand and teasing your co-workers.
I suppose it could also mean we're doing a job that a lot of folks couldn't, no disrespect meant to those that can't.

Just from my perspective : the logo is too busy. The items won't be recognisable at a distance and they won't be easily understood, either.
The idea about the trees of different sizes (= end result) from justallen, rather than the tools (= an instant in time) is much more likely to draw me in.
If your company's purpose is flagging, show a band of blue or pink around a large tree.

My opinion on the Logo is, that it is all kill, no grow. And like Sprucebunny said, a bit busy.

Thanks for all the input.  I agree the design is too busy and biased towards the harvest side of natural resource management... working on fixing that.

We had bumper stickers on our vehicles that said  Forestry feeds my family.

One memorable sticker on the bumper of a young and gung ho faller's pickup said "Mother Earth had it coming"

How about this one.   If you object to logging, try using plastic toilet paper.

How about one for the shop.  Pic deleted probably did not fit to theme anyway.
