You may have noticed in your travels that the frontier has rather a lot of trees. That turned out to be very handy for the Colonists, because you needed lumber for pretty much everything – from ships to buildings to furniture; or simply to heat your home in the winter.
Lumbering developed into a trade fairly quickly. It was both a dangerous and low-paying job that generated tough, hard-working folks; it’s now somewhat symbolic of the hardship settlers had to face establishing themselves in North America.
