Andrew Jaroche and his posse of young loggers are changing how it’s done


Andrew Jaroche wearing a yellow hard hatTwenty-two-year-old Jaroche is a fourth-generation logger. His great-grandfather started the business with simply a crawler and a chainsaw after returning home from World War II. Jaroche was a young boy when his father moved the company to the Upper Peninsula. Over the years they continued to expand, adding a sawmill and maple-syrup operation. The young logger brings a lot of energy and fresh ideas to Maples Sawmill. After he graduated from Lake Superior State University with a degree in business, he returned to the woods.
