Chemainus and Logging

Here is one of the Chemainus murals. It depicts an original way of logging as a fore runner to machine logging. Teams of oxen are used rather than machinery. Both the lack of speed and the lack of petrol pollution make this type of logging, in an environmental way of speaking preferable to modern machine based logging and some environmentalist loggers still go this way. This type of logging, in as much as it is still being practiced, deals with smaller parcels and logging for private landowners.
