Lumberjacks are the workers who perform the initial harvesting and transport of trees for ultimate processing into wooden products. Hand tools are used in harvesting trees. horses, sometimes hitched to wagons, are used to transport the felled trees. The work is difficult, dangerous, intermittent, low-paying, and primitive in living conditions. However, the men built a traditional culture that celebrated strength, masculinity, and confrontation with danger.
