Photo: GMTCC Student Limbs a Tree

photo by Vanessa Fournier | Tucker Baker, a Green Mountain Technology & Career Center (GMTCC) student, limbs a tree he just cut down on land owned by Diana and Paul Frederick of Hardwick. The GMTCC students have been working on the selective cutting timber job for about a month. They are gaining experience and learning what it’s like to work in a logging operation. They use logging equipment, practice their tree felling skills, and learn about bucking and scaling timber.
