coming and going

lots of coming and going this day...the logs in the boom are on their way to a mill to be cut into lengths of lumber...the sawdust/wood chips are residue bound for a pulp mill, and a jet plane bears witness to the presence of the international airport on Sea Island

An indication of how important the river is. V

great timing to capture the plane and interesting information about this sawmill! V

I'm surprised they're still using log booms after the concern of bark accumulating on river bottoms. Good way to transport sawdust tho' - that would be a lot of truck loads !

A nice capture of the many forms of transportation.

Almost long enough for the plane to land on ! 🤔 V.

Glad to see that at least some logs are processed locally.
Neil Marcus08-Jul-2019 15:42
I never thought of the sawdust as a recycle use. Good catch of the plane for added interest.

The timber industry is so important; glad to see this slice of its life!
Dan Greenberg08-Jul-2019 14:41
It is especially interesting to see all that saw dust. I never realized how it was moved around.
Helen Betts08-Jul-2019 14:35
Interesting to see how they transport whatever that is. Also great timing to get the plane in view, too.
