Using horses to haul trees from the woods is good for the forest and for the environment, in general. Logging is a messy job, usually requiring roads to be cut into the forest and heavy equipment to move the cut trees to the roads and onto waiting trucks. But a growing number of people are reviving the craft of logging with horses. Draft horses, bred to pull large loads, can maneuver in the woods in ways that a logging truck never could. And while a log skidder may weigh 10,000 pounds, a draft horse typically weighs only 1,600, making its impact on the forest floor much less damaging.
