Roanoke, VA – On September 20, the Forest Resources Association’s Appalachian Region honored Shawn Gragg and Kyle Bush with its Second Place Technical Writing Award for 2017. This annual Award recognizes the best Technical Releases published and posted on FRA’s website.
Both Shawn and Kyle are foresters with Glatfelter in Chillicothe, Ohio. They wrote Technical Release 16-R-22, Log Bridges Improve Harvest Site Access in Appalachians. This Technical Release gives two case study examples of how log bridges can be an inexpensive and effective alternative to extensive road building when it comes to crossing streams. (FRA members will find 16-R-22 in the members-only/login area of www.forestresources.org.)
The Forest Resources Association Inc. is a nonprofit trade association concerned with the safe, efficient, and sustainable harvest of forest products and their transport from woods to mill. FRA represents wood consumers, independent logging contractors, and wood dealers, as well as businesses providing products and services to the forest resource-based industries.
