ASSOCIATED CALIFORNIA LOGGERS
Representing California’s Professional Timber Harvesters Since 1973
Associated California Loggers (ACL) represents companies and individuals who harvest and transport materials for the forest products industry. Our members play a major role in the stewardship of California’s public and private forests, and we’re committed to the good management of this sustainable and renewable resource.
ACL offers a number of programs and services to promote the recruitment, safety and continuing education of professional timber harvesters. We advocate at the local, state and federal levels of government on laws and regulations affecting our members. We support polices that protect and strengthen our industry, and those that ensure the accessibility, productivity and health of California’s forests.

We work with experts to provide our members access to a variety of informative seminars on topics such as risk management, government regulations, industry best practices and much more.
