Description: The pulpwood, harvested in the Green River forests of Northern New Brunswick and managed by the Fraser Companies Limited, flows down the river in the annual spring log drive to Davis Mill Dam. Here it stretches like a carpet rolling up river. The logs will be moved down the channel at the left to the haul-up where they will be taken out of the water, loaded on trucks and taken to the company's pulp and paperboard mill in Edmundston.
