“I am Conservation”
Ron Tuttle, of Shannon County, is a professional logger. He insists on logging practices that protect the land and forests. “To some people logging is a bad word; hopefully, by using BMP’s [best management practices], we can change peoples’ attitudes toward loggers,” said Tuttle. “The world demands more environmentally minded products so we have to change with the times.” He was rewarded for his commitment to excellence with the 2007 Missouri State Logger of the Year Award. “It was an honor and great surprise when I was named Logger of the Year,” said Tuttle.
