In the second season the crew enters summer, enduring scorching heat while battling new challenges ranging from increasing pressure to cut and haul more timber, to dividing the team to log multiple tracts. As they face extreme weather, personnel issues, mechanical breakdowns and the constant push to grow the business during a time of economic uncertainty, the crew of Goodson's All-Terrain Logging works together to maintain their reputation of being the best swamp loggers around.
