    Going to start seeing a lot of it, it will spike when hurricanes hit the coasts. Insurance has started dictating size lumber used on pier & beam beach houses..saw mills are wanting 40' logs with 24" centers & there's a wee bit of a shortage in the Gulf & East Coast.

    We just don't have the timber around here for it anymore. When I left Temple Inland a few years back there was only 1 mill around to actually sell those saw logs to.

    I saw one this week coming down Hwy 88. The rumor is that this is going to be a good year for logging...lots of work lined up with several of the the big companies getting good contracts. Hope so!

    Every hunting season you miss is one you can not make up.

    There are two mills still going here...the one in Sonora takes the big logs and the one in Lincoln gets the pecker poles.

    There are 8 mills around us, was 9, guess which one closed? Just as many paper mills eating up the pulpwood.

    That's pretty crazy. I haven't seen a three log come down 88 since the powerpole fire and I was shocked to see one then also. I used to see them all the time as a kid around here.
