I want to personally thank not only Lowell's; but the Nation's Tree Workers for performing a most dangerous job for the benefit of all of us.

The public is not aware of the fact that being a Logger/Tree Worker is actually a more life threatening job than being a cop or a Firemen. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Loggers/Tree Workers die on the job more often than cops or Firefighters do. The public is not aware of this fact, because Loggers/Tree Workers do not fully exploit the deaths and the injuries of their fellow workers each and every time that death or injury occurs in their ranks. Unlike the police and the Firefighters; who make damn well sure to fully exploit the deaths and the injuries of their fellow workers.

Again, I want to personally thank our Nation's Loggers/Tree Workers for putting thier lives on the line for us each and every day. More so than the cops or the Firefighters do. We should all be thankful that we have men and women who are willing to enter into this dangerous profession.
