In the 1970s, a professional skills competition for forestry workers was created that tested five disciplines based on their daily work:
The 33. World Logging Championships will take place in Lillehammer (Norway) from August 2nd to 5th 2018.
The competition focuses on how well participants can handle a chain saw. They are evaluated on their speed, accuracy and safety in each discipline. A few tenths of a millimeter often mean the difference between victory and defeat.
STIHL supports the World Logging Championships at both the national and international levels.
