If every sawmill in America could saw nothing but Hurricane Michael downed timber, it couldn't be sawed before it ruined.

Looks like they could use some of that lumber for fixing some roofs!

The divistation along the coast is horrific to human and property. That being said the hurricane passed mainly over low population area that are mainly paper company or private planted timber land. This NOAA Imagery focuses mainly on areas that have some population. If you zoom back from the area I focused on there large blue areas that are all or mostly timber land. I know a couple of people that have a few thousand acres of timber that will go to waste. Most all timber companies are book well past the expiration date of downed Southern Yellow Pine.

I made a trip to our fishing cabin to blue trap the roof today. There is no way I can possibly describe the divistation. Our cabin is 5 miles north of Wewahitchka Fl. The drive from Marianna Fl. to Wewahitchka (about 35 miles) 95% of the SYP 8" to 14" were snapped 10 to 15 feet up. This wasn't just one area it was the entire distance and it seem to extend about 50 miles wide. About every 10 miles there were 1 lane roads with flagmen where power crews were restoring power lines. The houses that had roof to tarp all had blue tarps.

In some of these photos you can't see it but it is all like this

The problem with that is getting it dried, planed and graded. Folks with major roof damage can't wait for that. DanG shame but that's the way it is. :(

DanG did you have any damage? It went right up your way, and you were on the east side.

I feel for you guys. We got hit by category 5's in 2006 and 2011 so I know what you're going through.

With regard the timber plantations the 2011 cyclone Yasi hit 30 mile to the south of us over a largish (100k acres or so) plantation estate, mostly Caribbean Pine but there were stands of Slash Pine (which is one of your SYP's). A lot was laid over but a lot more was just smashed off and standing.
Hancock were chipping them for export pulp for the next three or four years, so while its not much return maybe theres hope of getting something back from them.

My thoughts are with you.
The quickest way to make a million dollars with a sawmill is to start with two million.

My heart is out for those folks that were in its path, guess its the price to be paid for a warm sunny climate. Up here in the northeast the weather will pester you but won't kill you, I'll take the snow and cold. Frank C.

I’m way up near Tennessee and have been getting calls to buy plantation pecan logs from down there.  One guy said he had “thousands” of downed pecans.  What a shame.

If you had a semi with a knuckle boom loader, and a week to spend down hear, you could pick and chose about any thing any trees that grow down here. Most all would be given away to get rid of them. Mostly they have been cleared from the road, but that it.

I'm sorry if I bore you with my continued post of Michael destruction. I grew up traveling this beautiful mostly rural agricultural and wooded part of Florida, Georgia, and Alabama, from Apalachicola to Destin, from Cairo Ga. to Dothan Al. I have driven all the main roads and a large majority of the back roads.

This is a map of the destruction that is pretty much the same in all the orange area, and to a lesser extent in the yellow area as you get further from the center where the eye passed. Michael remained a Category 2 well into the middle of Georgia. The video is in Marianna Fl. about 60 miles north of where it came ashore in Mexico Beach and was still a Category 3.
