This sawmill mills hoop pine thinnings exclusively, and the colour of the sawdust is the light colour of the hoop pine timber.

As a child, the sawdust heaps from the mill were one of my favourite playgrounds; and later as an athlete this sawdust formed the landing pits for my long jumping and high jumping. Thereby hangs many a tale, and the pleasure of memory.
