The ATPA is proud to bring timber harvesters and other logging and forestry professionals its Southwest Forest Products Expo, an amazing indoor equipment and services showcase held at the Hot Springs Civic and Convention Center. Join us as the partitions in the Convention Center open wide to make room for numerous large-scale equipment exhibitors and vendors from across the country, all under one roof.  Check back regularly to see who is exhibiting, and turn your visit to the Expo into a fantastic Hot Springs vacation.

Legacy of Logging CelebrationAn Oral History Project 

ATPA celebrated last year a quarter of a century of service to its members having incorporated in 1991, and as it continues into its next 25 years, the organization will be recognizing timber harvesting across the state who together represent a legacy of logging.

Life Narrative Project – Do you want to Participate? 

ATPA will be collecting life narratives from loggers and others in the forestry community to commemorate the next 25 years of timber harvesting in the Natural State. These recorded life histories as they relate to logging will document the legacy of Arkansas loggers and the heritage of this important occupation and livelihood pursuit, and the many ways in which timber harvesters ensure sustainable practices and forest stewardship.

If you are interested in having your life story recorded, please let us know. We will be on-hand at the Expo for three days to record sessions. You can email Courtney Woods at cwoods@twcny.rr.com in advance if you are interested. We will be recording individual stories, as well as group roundtable conversations. For your participation, you will receive a copy of the recording after the stories are downloaded.
