They sell them to loggers because if you tell a log to roll over, it will just sit there.

I think loggers in general should not be in the "tool naming" business.

Who else would "cut down a tree" and then "cut up the tree "

No use telling a log to roll over.... it cant.

Especially if you've cut off the slabs and given it square corners.

Making lumber would be much easier if they could grow square trees.

Let’s get the scientists on that. If they put a square mold around each tree when little, it will grow to fill it. Just need to make the mold bigger every year. job security for the young kids today. Teach them the basics of hard work.

you would heed a bunch of molds 2 X 4, 2 X 6 ect. then the kids would need to be awake for math and Reading to be able to get the correct forms on the trees.

Not really, instead of spinning them, just run them straight through a four headed debarker. Same result just a different machine.
