Men Who Downed Those Huge Trees

Even though this picture was taken decades ago, when giant trees were common and men chopped them down by hand, it still feels modern. Maybe it’s because the chain in front looks so new, and the men are so young.

I wonder though how many hours it took for those seven men to take down that giant Douglas Fir.
