Storyboard Text

  • In the Northern woods of Minnesota these lumberjacks were doing what they do every day cutting down trees for lumber.
  • Once the lumberjacks were done cutting down trees they sent the logs down the river to the saw mill to be turned to lumber.
  • At the saw mill the logs were taken out of the river and they were turned to lumber and sold the lumber to consumers.
  • By 1905 the lumber industry was in full swing and lumberjacks were cutting as much as 2 billion feet of boards annually, which is enough to go around the entire earth once with a one inch thick fourteen foot wide board walk.
  • After 1905 the amount of quality trees had droped dramatically and now there wasn't enough money to keep up with the expenses of maintaining rail roads.
  • By 1929 all of the strong healthy trees were cut down and the lumber industrie was forced to move farther west.
