Lacey Jackson

Lacey finds a lot of solace in the forest, but she understands that in order to enjoy what the forest has to offer her, she also has to maintain it. Currently, she lives on a forested property and spent quite a bit of time learning how to take care of the property. 

Lacey has applied those skills to other aspects of her life and often clears paths for mountain biking competitions and horse endurance races. Now she brings that knowledge to Forestry Pros to help others learn about the importance of maintaining and properly clearly forested areas. 

What advice do you have for someone who is interested in this trade?

Never underestimate the importance of safety. I’ve seen many people try to jury-rig situations, especially when felling trees or moving logs, and it’s always been risky. You have to trust your equipment and a big part of that trust comes from knowing how it works, reading the manuals, always knowing where your hands are, and making sure you take that extra moment to pause and carefully review all safety measures.

Do you have a favorite type of wood to work with?

I love working with Manzanita. I know it comes with many risks, primarily how prone it is to cracking as it dries, but I love the color.

What are your favorite tools of the trade?

I love winches. I have come to appreciate just how useful they can be in various situations. Just because you think you are strong enough to deadlift a stump or push a log out of the way doesn’t mean you should, especially when you have winches in the back of your truck.

Candace Osmond

Candance grew up watching her father run a lumber mill and work as a journeyman carpenter. As she watched him hone his craft, she learned about various types of wood and the art of woodworking. Her time spent learning about Forestry with her dad sparked a lifelong interest and passion. 

As an adult, she worked in the construction industry as a designer and certified wood specialist. She loves sharing her knowledge of wood, woodworking, and the tools of the trade with others so they can get the most of their time in the forest or in the shop. 

What advice do you have for someone who is interested in this trade?

Know your woods. Each species behaves differently and requires different tools and techniques for cutting and building.

Do you have a favorite type of wood to work with?

I love maple! It’s a beautiful semi-hardwood that cut wonderfully and makes great furniture and cabinetry.

What are your favorite tools of the trade?

I think portable sawmills are one of the best tools you can invest in. Especially if you’re tackling a large project like building a home or thinking about starting a lumber business of any kind.
