The program has received high praise from members of the Tennessee General Assembly and has been recognized by the Forest Resource Association, Inc. as one of the top three logger training programs nationwide. In Tennessee, the Tennessee Conservation League awarded the Tennessee Master Logger committee the Forest Conservationist of the Year Award for achievement in training timber harvesters in the need for conserving our natural resources and managing our forests in a sustainable manner.
