Horse Team logging in the Redwood forest

Horse Team logging in the Redwood forest

Horse Teams were used in the early days of logging to get the trees to a landing and on to the mill. Horses were later replaced by the more sure footed oxen. It was found that oxen pull in unison to each other making it easier to pull these huge loads.
