This industrial film features scenes from the logging and lumber industries in the 1950s. Workers saw trees and mill logs, demonstrating the entire process of turning a tree into lumber. The mill shown in the video is most likely Temple Lumber Company in Pineland, Texas. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
