Excelsior Redwood Lumber Company One log load

Excelsior Redwood Lumber Company One log load

The Excelsior Redwood Company controlled and owned 10,000 acres of redwood timber at Freshwater, California. Included in this land were thousands of acres of virgin redwoods, many trees of which were of great size. Here is a spectacular photo of a "1 log load" as far as the eye can see along the Arcata Bottoms, Arcata, California. One log loads were fairly common up through the 1970's.
