Been loading rail cars in maine with poplar for sappi mill in Cloquet,MN. I have sent pine logs to maine from Washington W.V but I think this is the farthest I have shipped wood!

Whats real weird about that is we have a couple hundred cord of aspen decked up and Sappi said they weren't buying, so its slowly getting sprinkled in with our hardwood pulp and going to New Page/ Verso.

Yes sure is Glatfelter is the owner this week . 

Burning Springs was one of two oil fields in the world prior to the Civil War and the Rathbone Well within Burning Springs is the oldest producing oil well in the world. The Rathbone family mainly owned and operated this oil field until the Oil Boom of 1861 in which over 10,000 people moved to the area in less than a year. In 1863 during the Civil War, the Confederate army burned the town and over 120,000 barrels of oil which drastically hurt the Union. Today, Burning Springs has few inhabitants, but is listed on the National Register of Historical Places and has a small park commemorating the oil industry.

Seems like shipping that far has to cut into the bottom line, but at least you have the option.

Its a one time deal, they have to return some railcars to the mill out there, it costs the same to send them back loaded or empty. They are almost all full now.

It may be a price thing . We have a few high grade paper mills and chip board mills all competing for Aspen and the price on stumpage gets run up quite high on  Aspen sales . Sapi's mill here uses over a 1,000 cord a day . Blandin 700 , LP 6-700. all within a hundred miles .

Well I like to think that Sappi is trying to keep some of us new england pulp cutters going by using this opportunity to reduce supplies here and use some empty cars. It seems like I have been hearing that it was wetter in Mn this summer than it was here. Maybe I am being too optimistic but at this point it is better to be hopeful. If oil would go up and the dollar would drop and we have a wet fall I might cut some aspen in jan and feb. I have a bunch standing in easy to reach spots where I thinned softwood this summer I would love to cut those before regrowth gets in the way.

One of the mill I sell logs to also chips pulp for Domtar. While I was there on Saturday morning three trucks from Tennessee pulled in loaded with pulp logs. The log buyer wasn't sure exactly where they came from, but he thought that the trip was three and half hours each way.  :o
Long way to truck pulp. I would have to believe that Domtar worked out a deal with someone.
