The Mover for the Cutting Team is responsible for moving cut rounds to the splitting area.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Responsible for moving rounds (preferably by rolling) to the appropriate area under the direction of the Spotter. Refer to the Round Cutting Specifications.
  • If possible, rounds should be stacked neatly, either on ends or on sides.
  • A Cutting Team may have 1 or more Mover.
  • No cut rounds should be left in the cutting area when the Cutting Team is through for the day. All rounds should be moved to their appropriate area.

Skills Needed:

  • A person with a love of our Lord Jesus and a heart for serving others.
  • Physical strength and dexterity required to safely move cut rounds. Requires a greater lifting and rolling strength compared to the other Mover positions; see Mover descriptions and the Mover Note.


Each Cutter is encouraged (but not required) to recruit a team consisting of a Spotter and a Mover.

It is desirable for this team of three to schedule to work together at the woodlot.

Mover Note:

Movers can be part of any woodlot work team: Cutting Team, Splitting Team, Stacking Team, or Delivery Team. Each team has specific Mover responsibilities consistent with the work goals of the teams; see Mover descriptions. You will thus find slightly different requirements for each position: Mover – Cutting Team, Mover-Splitting Team, Mover – Stacking Team, and Mover – Delivery Team.
