The Spruce Division was part of the U.S.'s WWI effort to increase war material production.  In those days, aircraft were made mostly of wood (spruce) and fabric.  That's where the majority of the spruce production went. There's a chapter in "Railroads in the Woods" that has photos and a discussion of the Spruce Division,its woods railroads and mills.
