Final Contract Load

A loaded log truck destined for the pulp mill.The final loads destined for mills are the pulp logs. These are long, slender trees that are not big enough for lumber.

They have been cut down to the 3 inch tops and are trucked to either the pulp mill in North Plains, or the sister company in Longview, Washington.

Since both mills are the same company, the hauler gets to choose the destination depending on where other forests are located that have logs scheduled to be hauled.

This is the final load out our forest to complete the logging contract for our cleanup/thinning project for this year. It has been an intensive summer and seeing this last load depart from the forest brings the realization that the really big job of clearing and replanting is now looming and the hard work has just begun.
