Question
Define the categories of lumberjacks.???

Answer
Hi Sayantan,

Lumber jacks are men and women who work in the forest resources industry.  They trim the branches, top the trees, cut the trees down, trim the logs, extract the logs to staging areas and load the prepared logs onto trucks for the saw mill.   This is hard dangerous work.  It is seasonal in nature from spring to early fall.  It is too cold in the winter to fell trees.

Please let me know if I answered your question as it was rather vague.
