This was an 80 year old native loblolly stand in Polk County, Texas.  The big ones were around 40 inch diameter, some bigger some smaller.  It was in a 500 acre southern pine beetle spot back in the '80's, we cut near one million board feet before we had it controlled, and left a lot more in the woods.  One particular acre cut some 30,000 board feet of loblolly in 15 trees.  I enjoyed watching two trees load a 18 wheeler up.  Just found the photos.

I wished I would of taken more picture here of the white pine my Father and me cut here. Some was 50 inches arcoss,a few was just about 60. When we started my Father said,We better get rid of the big ones first. Good thing too. They redid the mill and told us nothing over 48 inches. My father said,Fine,the big ones are all gone now. We still had plenty to cut that was under 48 inches.Cut those big ones, and it really opens up the forest.
