The Longleaf Alliance
Logger Peter Doucette measures his girth against a single virgin pine. Thompson Lumber Company, ca. 1908--From the Sawdust Empire Collection. Thompson Lumber Co. had a large mill in Willard, TX. Note: that although the species of pine is not identified, the bark and fire scars at the tree base strongly indicate this tree is a longleaf pine.
