|Here are some shots of loggers making a living chopping
down some huge trees. Again these pictures were sent via email and
unfortunately I don't have much info on them either. Like the previous
pictures, I copied and pasted any text that was next to them and
hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
Oh...one more thing, be glad you don't have to cut down timber like they did back
then. How tough were these guys?
When the Northwest logging industry was still young.
Before chainsaws were invented, the logging industry in
the United States & Canada was a seriously challenging occupation and we
are only talking about 125 years ago.
In the Pacific Northwest there were forests full of monster trees and
cutting them down was done by hand. This is really old growth timber! Just look at the length of the hand
saw they needed.
