Hello Ian. This reminds me of the lumberyards we have here in Oregon, though we don't have as many as we used to. Most of the logging here is for Douglas Fir.

This is the world of my childhood, Mike. I smell it and I am home! Dad was the mill manager in the 1950s - when it was a smaller mill than it is today. And as a child I played here. The Security guys keep all kids away now! At age 7, I would wait till the men finished work at 4:30 and I'd then be in the forklift and driving around the yard to stack the timber that had been stripped ready for drying!

They were the days.

Regards,

Ian
