AFA Names Beau & Tyler Jones Loggers of the Year

November 24th, 2022 by

Arkansas Forestry Association Names Beau and Tyler Jones Loggers of the YearThe Arkansas Forestry Association (AFA) recognized Beau and Tyler Jones as Loggers of the Year at the 2022 AFA Annual Meeting  in Little Rock.

Beau and Tyler Jones are fourth generation loggers from Fort Hill, AR (Drew County) who set the standard for professional loggers and businessmen. As the leaders of R.D. Jones Logging, Inc., Beau and Tyler are building on the legacy set by their great-grandfather, R.D. Jones, Sr., grandfather, R.D. “Sonny” Jones and father, R.D. “Rob” Jones, a former AFA Logger of the Year in 2007.

Beau and Tyler have adhered to a plan of success since they were young – learning the business in the summer, then on to college to earn their respective degrees in accounting (Beau) and business (Tyler). Today, they operate four crews and a team of 36 employees. The operation includes 10 contract trucks and 10 of their own to haul logs to facilities across the region, primarily from Weyerhaeuser lands.

In addition to their dedication to the success of their business, Beau and Tyler are active in their church, Shady Grove Missionary Baptist, community, devoted husbands and fathers. Beau and his wife, Kohl, have two sons, Carter, 5 (R.D. Jones IV), and Davis, 2. Tyler and his wife, Korry have one daughter, Evy Claire, 4.

Fellow logger Mike Pennington nominated Beau and Tyler for the award noting “they epitomize the professional logger.”

Organized in 1947, AFA is the only private, nonprofit organization representing the entire forestry community in Arkansas. AFA has over 1,200 members who join in AFA’s mission of advocating for the sustainable use and sound stewardship of Arkansas’s forests and related resources to benefit members of the state’s forestry community and all Arkansans today and in the future.
