Here are a few of the terms used by the common logger in East Texas. This mini-glossary is by no means required reading for Flatheads. In fact, with the exception of the title itself, I tried to shy away from most of the logging industry’s lingo for fear it would clutter the story. However, this brief glimpse into the language of the loggers should provide some insight into this unique trade.
Bed a tree, to. To level up a path in which a tree is to fall, so that it may not be shattered.
Binder chain. A chain used to bind a load of logs together.
Bird Beak. When felling a tree, a wedge cut into the trunk.
