Francis Beidler Ghost Logs

The Francis Beidler Forest was created via a purchase of approximately 3400 acres from the Beidler family in 1969.  Although the logging of old-growth forest on Beidler family properties in South Carolina ended by the early 1970s, some of those logs are still around and in the news.

Today's Post and Courier reports on the controversy regarding harvesting logged trees resting at the bottom of Lake Marion.
