Very interesting video and i enjoyed it immensely.
Boy did those guys work like dogs. And lived to be maybe 75 if lucky.
However the preservationists have a point.
A 2000 year old tree felled to make houses  that may last 200 years.
Seems like a waste.
I am a forester who is retired now but made my living marketing hardwoods that were maybe 150 to 200 years old.
This video did put, for me, a new perspective on the Redwoods.

Excellent Film!!  That was 1940's......imagine what logging was like another 50 yrs before.
 Love to see how things were done in the past, still stuff that can be learned from that era. 
An aweson example of what it took to build our nation. Also a good reason for all of us to document our logging adventures and some of the other can do things that we do everyday. Someone some day is going to look at this and say much the same we are saying now.
.

I agree with you on this.  And folks like us are still "building" a nation through inovation, technology, and just good common sense.  Makes me want to get a video camera too.

Thanks for the film!
