Logs such as those in photograph were frequently weighed more than 40 tons apiece, and were called "butt cuts" in description of the portion of the tree from which they were taken. The massive log in the foreground probably had a diameter of 12 feet, was was dwarfed by other trees taken from the woods by earlier loggers. A.W. Ericson has a Woods boss pose for the camera to show the size of this 300ft redwood tree.
