    Default Old Time Logging

    Here are a couple of pictures my Brother took last Elk Season of a stump that had the tree logged likely some years ago .

    In Southern Oregon near Prospect . What we found Really cool was the spring board notches are still visible .

    A two man team working in a coordinated manner could cut quite a lot of timber using a two man crosscut saw and axe. It is truly amazing just how much board feet of lumber those crews cut while harvesting those virgin forests.
