Powell River & Forestry.

Stopped into the forestry museum in Powell, accidentally really cause it was at the beach. Lol.  Willingdon Beach.

The pulp mill here was once the largest in the world employing 3,000 people.  Now just 300.  So lumber is or was king here.  Popped in though pretty much to check it out for my arborist neighbours, James and Gerda.  Here’s some pics guys!



Chainsaw heaven?


You would have to be crazy tough to be a logger way back when, and even now I figure.

Have you ever heard of a Finland Candle James?  You’ll have to give it a try.  Here are some pics and instructions.  Do you know what kind of wood that is they used there?



Cheers!
