MLOP Program Seeking Delimber, Buncher, and Crane Intructors for Summer 2022! Apply Now!
The Mechanized Logging Operations Program is seeking to fill instructor positions for the summer session of the program at an active logging site in the woods northeast of Old Town. Instructors are needed from June 13-Sept. 23.
The program is seeking delimber, feller buncher, and crane operators for these positions. Each instructor will be hired for 15 weeks total (60 hours a week for 10 weeks, 40 hours a week for 5 weeks.) The pay rate is $23 an hour. Pickup provided to get to and from the job site. For instructors not living in the Old Town area, room and board will be provided.
These positions are a great short-term opportunity for employees that might be impacted by reduced harvesting operations for the summer but could come back to their company in the fall, or for recently retired operators looking to share their knowledge with the next generation.
If you or anyone you know is interested in this opportunity, contact Donald Burr immediately at 207-356-1541 or email@example.com to learn more!

Sharing the Road with Horse Drawn Buggies
With the growth of Amish communities across Maine, many motorists are seeing more horse-drawn buggies. While the concept of sharing the road with pedestrians and bicyclists is more common, sharing the road with horses requires enhanced courtesy, focus and safety awareness. LEARN MORE
Logging Industry News
Thomas Douglass usually looks forward to the end of spring mud season, when most independent loggers like himself return to the woods after a month-long break. But this year, he said, was different.
