This is my entry for Becky’s for July #TreeSquare challenge.
A common site to see in Oregon is logging trucks on highways or barges on the rivers. Logging Truck in Depoe Bay, Oregon on Highway 101. Tug Boat with lumber on the Columbia River near Cascade Locks, Oregon. See more on the history of the Timber Industry in Oregon, click here.
One tree is often left in an logging area. It’s used as a skyline to anchor the carriage. It is usually a tree that they used as a pulley to get the logs up the mountain.
Here are some pulleys that were used in logging notice that they are resting on a huge old stump.
Here is are a couple of photos from a lumber yard in Toledo, Oregon.
For every forest that is lumbered, new trees are replanted. Here is an example of one lumber company having fun with their replanting of trees. Again, you can see the larger trees they left standing.
I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts. So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog. Feel free to contact me anytime. I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.
