For example; in the State of California a Forestry Contractor may be required to hold a License. The license type is referred to as License Timber Operators license (LTO). More information can be viewed at the Cal Fire site located here. Licensed Timber Operators
The Cal Fire site refers to “two” types of licenses that can be obtained depending on the kind of timber operations conducted. Here is a copy/pasted excerpt:
“Licensed Timber Operators have two different types of licenses depending on the kind of timber operations they are authorized to conduct. Licenses which begin with the letter “A” authorize the licensee to conduct any type of operations. Those licenses which begin with the letter “B” restrict the licensee to only the removal of minor forest products such as firewood and Christmas trees.”
