The headrig for big wood will help the valley’s newest mill at the Valemount Industrial Park turn a profit. It’s tough to get rid of large diameter wood, the headrig will break it down into manageable pieces that will be sawn into boards in other parts of the mill. Because they don’t fetch much on the open market, turning big wood into lumber should help the Valemount Community Forest turn a profit while creating local jobs.  /ANDRU MCCRACKEN
