hello, just back from the mill and the concessions, these are some of the working conditions in the Bolivian forest logging Brazilian Redwood, Brazilian Walnut and tigerwood:
‘acampamento’, in Spanish this is an improvised temporarily spot where the workers eat, sleep and take a bath (from barrels)
‘acampamento’ from another angle
ipe logging with a CBT tractor
as you can see on the trunk (tigerwood), it is tagged with a number which is being inspected and controlled by the authorities for legal cutting of the hardwood
some fine ipe hardwood log ready to be cut!
