That is amazing. I think PDad deserves better treatment! I resent boss' who treat their employees like crap. I too have a boss that knows jack about running this place but we tell him off if he starts getting out of line. We have his testosterone outnumbered with estrogen 2 to 1. Poor guy.

That was - - - WAS my industry for 20 years. I was a pulpwood supplier for IP and Champion Int. also sold good logs to Daquam up somewhere in Quebec for framing dimensional lumber. Junk wood went for paper. We bid ourselfs out of profit at the same time the yards were full of sawn lumber and logs. At the same time Champion sold our Spruce mill because they spent profits made off our backs to build high tec mills in *. America somewhere (dont care). The eventually sold everything to IP. I feel about IP like Pmom feels about your plant. Everything just went bad here in NY all at once about 4 years ago. 4 paper mills shut down in the same year. Price of logs didnt cover the stumpage, rising fuel and a mans labor.

I loved working the woods. It was my own grass roots business and I had a few good years just before the end. I dedicated my entire life to it from the age of 23-43. Now I'm just a bouncing puppet. I produced enough raw product for one house a week and I have no idea how much paper. I worked alone because the cost of workers comp for forestry is 50 cents on a dollar.

Nothing like the smell of fresh cut wood, the mountain air, and PROPER forest management. My life will never be the same.

Just thought I'd share.
