Default Logging before chainsaws

I thought I would put this here because more people will see it.

I am glad we have chainsaws to cut down the twigs we have these days.

I'm just finishing reading "The Loggers", one of the Time Life series of books. Lots of good pictures and history of the logging in the western states. Mighty impressive what they accomplished with primitive tools.

I lived in Oregon for 30 years and always wondered why they cut those massive fir trees and had no way to move them. Some still laying rotting where they were cut 75 years ago. Been involved with the timber industry since 1971 building roads and earth filled dams in the central coast area and the timber mills could not even cut those trees into usable lumber, and many had rotted still standing.
