Logging stops when the temperatures stay unusually cold for two or three days. "The trees will freeze and when they do, they will splinter when we cut them," said Tiger.
Jerry Griffen added, " If the trees freeze they will break when they fall, we have to stop cutting them until they thaw."
The ground also proves challenging to loggers when the thermometer plunges.
"It makes the ground wet, like a rain. When the ground freezes it brings the water up and then when it thaws the water goes back down," said Tiger of the process that makes the terrain difficult in which to maneuver.
