    .lumber for building ships
    No.

    turpentine/rosin to help with building ships?
    100% correct.

    They would use slave labor to gather the sap from the trees, and it would drain through the trench and collect at one end..

    This area was the world leader at producing turpentine. Heres a little article about it.

    The rest of the pics are not really great, but I did the best I could. It's of a very rare Red-cockaded woodpecker. The sun was in the wrong angle and I had to zoom my camera all the way out.









    Well that's all the pics that I currently have taken. I have only mapped about half of the preserve so I have a long way to go. I'll be adding more pics as I take them.
