Michel Pronovost is an Operations and Roads Supervisor with Génier Bros. in Cochrane, Ontario. He oversees the cutting, logging, and trucking activities for the company. Michel decides where and how logging roads are built to protect forest values, like animal habitats and bird nests, as well as creeks, rivers, and streams. His job also involves zipping around on snowmobiles and tromping through the woods on snowshoes!
In this episode, Lacey learns how forest roads are constructed, challenges Michel to a ribbon tying contest, and even tries hauling logs to the mill in a huge semi-truck!
