"Members of the Master Logger community belong to the most prestigious group of professional loggers in North America. They have widespread recognition and credibility —both geographically and across all facets of this business. Master Logger Certification is an excellent program that provides an efficient way to help manage change while certifying to major customers that the fiber Master Loggers produce is done to a recognized standard that has been verified by a third party."
—Greg Barrows, Verso Paper

"For us, it's about personal recognition. There is no other team like ours and our work IS who we are. We like that Master Logger Certification recognizes that and creates a standard for the rest of the loggers in our state. And we know the mills are checking to see if we're certified. When times are hard, it's good to know that we'll be last on their list for downsizing because of our certification."
