Tractors moved pulp logs during the Brown Company logging operation in Magalloway Plantation. The logs were staged on frozen bodies of water for transport by stream to a pulpwood mill, following the spring ice melt.
The Northeastern Timber Salvage Administration oversaw such salvage logging efforts in the aftermath of the New England Hurricane of 1938.
