Michigan Logging Truck Accidents
Lumbering in Michigan has a rich history. It started way before with the French, who used lumber to build forts and posts. Later on, the British and the Americans used Michigan’s lumber to build war and merchant ships. The pine trees of Michigan helped make the lumbering industry grow and flourish. Michigan’s lumber production was almost the same as the production of three states combined.
Although not as rich as it was during its heyday, lumbering and logging are still very much alive in the state of Michigan. Michigan is still home to several logging companies and sawmills, hence the presence of logging trucks on its streets. Logging trucks are large trucks used for the specific purpose of carrying logs or timber. Some logging trucks come with integrated flatbeds. Some logging trucks come with a tractor unit and a trailer pulled behind it.
