Release Note

Around 1940 the New England forest employed thousands of skilled woods workers. King Spruce presents a detailed account of spruce harvesting in northern New England. Scenes include winter cord-cutters and yarding crews in the forest with axes and handsaws, teamsters with their horses, and men in bateaus-moving logs down river and across lakes to the paper mill.
An orchestral score backs up the colorful narration that describes the hazards of felling trees. "If a lumberjack had been behind the butt, he''d have been knocked caulk boots over tin cup."
Pulp cutters demonstrate, in great detail, their tools and techniques. They assemble axes, use pulp hooks, cant dogs, load a horse-drawn sled for a steep downhill run, and prepare a dynamite charge.
The climax of the film features a mind-boggling log jam with thousands of four-foot pulp logs filling the waterway, cleared, first by men with pick poles, then with dynamite blasts. The narrator dryly concludes, "Very few logs are lost, and very few men."

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.''s standard return policy will apply.
