Welcome to arkloggers.com – site of Arkansas’ award-winning Ark Pro Logger training and education initiative.
Since its inception in 1995, more loggers, landowners, and forestry professionals have participated in the Ark Pro Logger program than in any other training program of its kind nationwide. Ark Pro Logger – the program and earned distinction by its graduates – is administered by the Arkansas Timber Producers Association (ATPA), an organization representing the interest of timber harvesters across the state. The program reflects the collective commitment of the region’s timber harvesters to high standards of professionalism and represents a voluntary adherence to rigorous principles of sustainable forestry and natural resource conservation.
