I think its really two fold. You have people who work in the logging industry, referred to as "loggers" by outsiders. Then within that scope, those that are referred to as loggers are usually the ones who know the whole ball of wax. They know how to harvest and sell, run the equipment and do the books, understand the laws and make up the contracts. Deal with mills, and organize the different crews. Sometimes, they are the ones doing all the work, even if its solo. But, they still know how to do it all. Basically what Bitzer said. To my friends and acquaintances, and people I meet, I am a "Logger". To anyone in the industry I'm a contracted Faller and Skidder Operator.
