Greenville logger Randy Pew wants to remove biomass from the forest, build a profitable business and provide a valuable commodity.
He shared his plan with the Quincy Library Group on April 25, and so impressed Supervisor Lori Simpson, who was in attendance, that she invited him to the Board of Supervisors’ May 7 meeting.
“You’re a man of resilience,” Simpson told Pew during the supervisors’ meeting. “You’re not whining. It shows what kind of character you have.”
