MDC Honors Racine, MO Logger, Anthony Gruver with State Forestry Award
RACINE, MO (STL.News) – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has named Anthony Gruver the Southwest Regional Logger of the Year.
Gruver, the logging manager of D&D Hardwood Products in Racine, grew up in the logging business. He started in the business as a young boy driving the skidder for his father, Darrell Gruver, the long-time owner of D&D. Over the years, the younger Gruver spent thousands of hours in the D&D Hardwoods mill as a sawyer, gaining greater insight into what can be sawed out of each log.
