Billed as the Original American Forestry Show, the 68th Annual Paul Bunyan Show kicked off with a steady rainstorm Oct. 3. The weather did little to dampen the spirits of exhibitors and attendees who came to learn about the latest forestry techniques and see the latest equipment innovations. The three-day event, held at the Guernsey County Fairgrounds in Cambridge, Ohio, ran from Oct. 3 to Oct. 5.

The show featured educational sessions and live demonstrations as well as more than 100 exhibitors displaying the latest equipment, products and services geared to the forestry industry, presented area equipment dealers, retailers and service providers.

Major show sponsors included Columbus Equipment Company, John Deere, Murphy Tractor & Equipment and Rudd Equipment Company. Columbus Equipment, Murphy Tractor & Equipment, Ohio CAT and Rudd Equipment Company were also among the companies that donated equipment for demonstration and competition events.
