Re: Apparently, Boston & Maine boxcars made it to Florida
Another product : wooden kitchen matches. EVERYONE needed them. One of the match makers had
an enormous factory near Duluth-Superior but there must have been others.
There's a lot of pine in New England too - but the really good stuff was removed in colonial days - for ship masts!
The second and third growth forests are mostly for paper and pulp.
Oh, another New England forest product to this day - hardwood FLOORING lumber. Lots of it. Oak. Maple.
And of course - wood furniture.
