The sign is not a bad idea. Also call your local Better Business Bureau,
Call the local paper and ask if they would like to do an article on local
logging practices and use you operation as an example, Stand up in church
and tell the group how you were treated so they won't get abused by the
same logger, tell all your friends and ask them to tell all their friends,
spread the word.....
