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.
The central hub for our 2020 Annual Meeting is here. Find all the information you will need for registration, accommodations, dates, and schedules. Check back frequently for updates.
Associated California Loggers believes continuing education is essential to protecting and advancing the timber harvesting profession. 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.
CERTIFICATION AND TRAINING
Being a successful logger in California takes more than a hard hat and a saw. We encourage our members to seek training and certification to advance careers and help member companies be successful. We support ProLogger certification and offer access to additional educational opportunities to support the people in our profession.
INSURANCE AND SAFETY
The safety and security of our members and its employees is a top priority for Associated California Loggers. That’s why we partner with agencies and select companies to provide our members with excellent insurance, OSHA, drug testing and safety services.
