Believing there isn't a better job than working with timber and once you do you are hooked for life my saying is "Once you get sap in your veins, you will always have sawdust in your pockets".

Forestry sayings?  My two favorites are "Don't cut faster than you can think"  and "Park where the fallers park.  If they move their pickups you better move yours.".

My Grandfather always told me, "If you always cut the junk wood, you always have good wood."

Our woodlot has always been our "savings account" so what he meant was, cut the junk wood if you can; the crooked stuff, the rotted wood, fir, aspen, etc (weeds) and let the better wood grow. And I have always done that, 30 years later and I am still cutting "junk wood" and the foresters are always saying the wood lot has "surprising yield".

As a sheep farmer, I have no intentions of arriving at the pearly gates in a well preserved body, rather I am going to slide into heaven sideways with my Kubota tractor, kick the manure out of my muck boots, and loudly proclaim, "Whoo Hoo, another Sheppard has just arrived!"

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?
I was going to put your third one on my truck but figured management might get a little touchy about public relations. It was a logging community but too many failed to see what put food on their table and a roof over their heads.

"Hug a logger, you'll never go back to trees"

I saw that on the back of a super-b chip trailer hauling into Weyerhauser in Grande Prairie. Just a side not but as I was pulling up with the log truck the driver jumps out to check on tires and she turned out to be quite an attractive lady. I have no idea if she put the bumper sticker on or not. Fleet truck not an owner/operator.

That reminds me of a stupid move I made last year...

You know how this time of year you get that snow/road grime all over the back of cars and people always write the same thing. "Clean me, I'm dirty."

Well for a joke I wrote on our Explorer: "Wife: Just as Dirty."

I don't think nothing of it we head off to our attorney to talk legal stuff. We park the car and they walk in with a shocked look on their face. It was not until I got back in the car that I remembered what I had written. Our attorney is also one of the Deacon's of our church!!

Whoops!

Trees are just tall grass.

If it was easy everyone would be doing it.
My wife said I collect junk, I told her I am a amateur industrial archaeologist just trying to save valuable artifacts.
