Penn State Extension

Penn State Extension will hold an A Little About Contracts for the Logging Professional online course on May 20th from 8 am to 1 pm

There are a lot of similarities between a harvesting contract and most other contracts that we deal with. A Little About Contracts for the Logging Professional will highlight the requirements of everyone involved in a contract as well as the protections it affords each party involved.

There will be a discussion on how contracts can help avoid disputes and misunderstandings and some examples of contracts will also be discussed.

This event will benefit not only managers of logging operations but also everyone involved in carrying out the work that is outlined in a harvesting contract.

Topics that will be covered:

  • What a contract is
  • Why have a formal contract
  • Who draws the contract up
  • Types of harvesting contracts
  • Essential parts to make it enforceable by a court
  • Legal impacts of a contract

All participants must have a high-speed internet connection and a computer or smartphone with a functioning camera, speakers, and microphone. Participants can test their setup on Zoom’s website prior to the meeting.

Participation will be visually monitored for crediting purposes. Individuals who leave their screen for a significant amount of time could risk losing credit for the training.

This course is offered in partnership with The Pennsylvania Sustainable Forestry Initiative and New York Logger Training, Inc.

Cost of this course is $65.  Deadline to register is May 14th
