Today we completed our 13th historical perspectives tour. Our final stop was at Wightman Specialty Lumber in Portlandville, NY. There we saw the process of turning logs into wooden boards ready for retail. After touring the facilities, we went to a nearby forest where two men from the lumber mill explained forest management, how to pick the best tree for the lumber and for the forest, and all about different species of trees. On the bus ride home, the group was given the opportunity to reflect on the visits and how it changed their perspectives.
