Description

The sycamore log felled in Tuscaloosa County measures 72 inches in diameter across the butt of the log and 58 inches on the other end. The tree was 65 feet tall, taking four hours and 20 minutes to fell. Then it took the whole day to skid the log 350 feet under the direction of Trimm (W.T.) Hamner.

Pictured are E.V. Cain, forester for the Albert Holman Lumber Company of Northport, and Hamner.
