In response to a request from the Maine Woodland Owners (formerly SWOAM), in January of 2017, W. C. Tripp conducted an on-site workshop on a current harvest site in Belfast, Maine. The purpose of this walk-through seminar was to highlight and to demonstrate low-impact harvest methods, with particular attention to protection of soils and water quality. This sensitivity to landowner properties is a hallmark of the work of W. C. Tripp Forest Products.
Skidder bridges are wood structures which protect streams and unstable ground from potential damage from heavy equipment. In an effort to promote environmental awareness and to preserve water quality and soil productivity, W. C. Tripp recently held a workshop in their construction and use for other logging firms.
