Description: We see a conveyer in the Baisley area along the Madawaska River. The Baisley conveyer piled up wood along the Madawaska River in Québec province. That wood came from the Green River forest. A private road was used by trucks up to here since it was faster and less expensive for the Fraser Companies.
