Women Lumberjacks Leave Behind Sawdust and Inspiration

CHERRY VALLEY, N.Y. -- Some of the country's best lumberjacks were in Cherry Valley this weekend for the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series.

While the sport is usually associated with men, "lumberjills" like Erin LaVoie hope more women will give it a chance.

"It's years really of training, getting your get together, you know, all of the help from everybody," said LaVoie, 3rd place in the women's division championship. "It's really a lot that goes into just that 20 or 30 seconds of an event of just smashing into the wood."
