License to Work: A National Study of Burdens from Occupational Licensing

Log Scaler



Highlights

License required in 2 states
34th most burdensome licensing requirements
93rd most heavily regulated occupation

(Last updated April 24, 2012)

Definition

Log scalers grade logs or estimate the marketable content or value of logs or pulpwood in sorting yards, millpond, log deck or similar locations. They also inspect logs for defects or measure logs to determine volume.

Summary

Though only Maine and Idaho license log scalers, the occupation ranks a relatively high 34th in terms of most burdensome requirements because both states require applicants to pass two exams, and Maine mandates two years of experience/education.
