6 LOGGERS ON SPRING BOARDS

6 LOGGERS ON SPRING BOARDS

You can see how springboards make a good platform in which to cut without interference of brush around a tree. This also allows them to cut on a smaller area of the tree to start because of the heavy Buttress of the tree, a 20 foot "Butt" of a large tree could and often did weigh well over 100,000 pounds.Plus all that taper was wasted at the mill.
