do they still own the land if so what do they do with it
when it was champion they owned it. then when they sold to the IP they sold the land . this is what i was told and he worked for the mill so he should know

Here that would be called a yard. Logs are skidded out and loaded at the landing.

thanks for the info    do you have a pic of a turpentine tree never heard of one  ;D

stump from a turpentine tree felled before the mid fiftys when a forest fire burned through this place. I fetched it in from out back, thought it looked a bit more appealing than a pt 4x4 for the street numbers. this area was known for stills, turpentine and moonshine. turpentine ended years ago, moonshine not so much.

Cut some nice pines today.   This is about a cord shy of the whole tree


Another load on the way to the road

I think about 3000 ft on the forwarder is a big load.  The bottom log in the first pic scaled 1100 Scribner.
