Roundlog export from Gravina
by Mike Sallee


November 06, 2004

Here's a photo taken a couple days ago of a barge being loaded with cedar helicoptered from Mental Health Trust's parcel on Gravina. The last I heard, Mr. Seley would not get a stick of this timber. These logs and the processing jobs they represent are to be exported in the round, "outsourced" to mills in the lower '48 and the Far East I suppose. Doesn't anyone see an irony here?
