I found these turpentine videos years ago and while the first 2  are rough for different reasons they are still enjoyable. I've looked for a cat face for years but I don't think they did much turpentining here in south Florida. I have found 2 hand hewn cypress ties though. Meant to go back one day and get it but it was deep in a Cypress slough and we never went back.

When I was starting out as a new young Forester (last century 1979) turpentining was still being done on a pretty significant scale.

Is it still being done on any sort of a commercial basis?

Not that I am aware of.  I believe the natural products have been replaced by synthetics or are obsolete, and turpentine and tall oil soap are byproducts of the pine Kraft pulping process so most of the turpentine is produced that way. The old ways of using the trees and catch pans/pails have been replaced by the modern pulping process for pine pulp.  The big pulpmill that I procured wood for for many years produced a lot of turpentine and tall oil soap.

But around here anyway, we still call any scar on the side of a tree a 'catface'.

There's an outfit in Patterson Ga that offers artisanal products. Sort of a niche market. Maybe one step below niche.
