Working in Harvesting Teams

For all people going working with the most beautiful and most important raw material – The Forest!


The books “Working in Harvesting Teams” provide the knowledge required for forest harvesting — covering everything from planning the harvesting site to stacking the wood in piles, including both harvesting and forwarding. They are designed to assist both practical professionals (harvester and forwarder operators) and planners. Part 1 is entitled “Basic knowledge” and Part 2 “Practical production“. The books have a unique educational approach, reinforced with over 650 photographs illustrating real work situations. By using illustrations and drawings the author makes complex information simple and easy to understand. Therefore, the books provide outstanding training assistance! They are excellent “boosters” for beginners, but the level of knowledge is high enough for all professionals to find “gold nuggets” in them!

A very grateful moment for Mora in Europe when the author consigns a first part delivery of books to the Latvian State Forests, Latvijas Valsts Mezi.

We are feeling proud that they now are implementing the Latvian edition of the books (Mezizstrades Darbi komanda) throughout their organization.

The author personally handed over 100 book packages in conjunction with giving a presentation for all regional managers.
