Logging in America goes in waves. The lumbermen work their way through
an area as the timber becomes mature, usually cutting most of it, then
come back in another generation after the land recovers from the
massacre. And of course it depends if you've had a period of major farm
abandonment a generation ago. These items are often more important than
current market conditions.
