Pulp pile, St. Croix Paper Co., Woodland, ca. 1910

Contributed by Penobscot Marine Museum

Description

Beginning in 1906, St. Croix produced newsprint in Woodland for more than 50 years.

When this photo was taken, piles of pulp wood logs were the raw materials for papermaking. By the time Georgia-Pacific purchased the paper company in 1963, a river full of logs had given way to small mountains of wood chips, brought in by tractor-trailers.
