Timber on the Move
Crisp archival footage, photographs and modern reenactments document the development of log moving technology and its impact on the land. You are taken back to the river drives in colonial New Hampshire and then to the introduction of helicopter and balloon yarding in the Pacific northwest. You see how geography played a role in the tools of the trade and the transportation of logs to the mills. See timber harvesting, river drives, big wheels, the steam donkey engine, logging railroads, steam loaders, the Lombard log hauler, and early crawler tractors and fairlead arches. Edited and produced by Vester Dick.
