importantly, it gave the farmers the opportunity to make a profit on trees they didn't need.

Because there were no canals or railroads until the mid 1800s, the river provided them the means of transporting the logs. The farmers would stack them on the river banks in the fall and winter. Just before the ice broke up in the spring, they would construct huge rafts, and with all their might, shove them into the freezing cold water and pole them downstream. An average raft would be approximately 200 feet long and 16 feet wide and many went as far as the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.
