på rot


Explanation:
förutom det svar du redan fått "om skogsskötsel" så talar man ofta i sverige om "skog på rot" (alltså träd som står kvar och växter). Kan det kanske vara detta som det handlar om?

(ute) på hygget


Explanation:
Om det hade handlat om fabriksarbete hade jag sagt "på fabriksgolvet", men eftersom det här handlar om skog så skulle jag tala om att saker sker på hygget, eller ute på hygget. Detta som motsats till händelser på högre nivåer inom ett företag.
