General Liability Insurance for Logging Operations

General Liability Insurance for Associations from Forest Specialty

Land management strategies are always changing, but logging and timber harvesting remain evergreen components of an efficient management plan. Timber harvests help promote the health and growth of a targeted area by clearing room for new understory growth (thereby helping foster greater biodiversity), reducing competition for nutrients between untouched and often more desirable trees, and reducing the risk of wildfire. Silviculture is also useful in helping landowners meet their property goals, whether that be opening room for livestock grazing or culling pest reservoirs.


Of course, all timber harvests come with risk. Logging operations can be tricky at the best of times, even for veterans of the industry, as nature can be unpredictable. Some cast-off material from a harvest – bark, log butts, etc. – might be forgotten during clean-up, for example, and later be found to contribute to a fire that has dealt damage to the client’s property. Caught unprepared, an angry client can spell disaster for your smaller logging operation.

Insurance for Logging Operations

Sometimes called E&O insurance, professional liability insurance differs from general liability insurance in that it’s designed to protect you and your business from negligence, error and omissions, or malpractice claims that arise during the completion of a professional service. For example, professional liability insurance will protect your business from harm if unforeseen weather conditions prevent you from meeting a deadline, and the client becomes dissatisfied. Professional liability coverage empowers you to conduct your business in the way you know is best without worrying that misunderstandings, clerical errors, or a missed deadline will cause your business undo harm.
