Redwood Lumber Industry | Northern California 1947

The American lumber industry provides us with all the wood we need to build homes, furniture, musical instruments, and other amenities that make modern life enjoyable. Over the years, this industry has changed in many ways, including taking steps to become more sustainable and embracing modern technology.

This video gives viewers a great look at what the lumber industry was like over 60 years ago. Although the equipment used by modern lumberjacks is much more efficient, lumber harvesting is still backbreaking work that requires a lot of time and energy.

At Southern Lumber, we carry the very best specialty woods and wood products available. Visit us for a wide variety of beautiful woods for all sorts of projects, from decking to vanities. Call (408) 297-9663 today!
