Herbert C. Haynes began working in the Maine woods when he was young, helping his father with the family's logging and trucking business. Although he didn't have a formal education in forestry, he knew how to cruise timber and put crews to work harvesting the wood. 

 At the age of 15, he began loading trucks by hand, then driving the load to market. When he started working in the woods, horses provided the power to skid the logs. In the 1960s, skidders changed the way the wood was moved.
