This is not just an occupation in the UK -
NZ and Australia both had their own tree fellers, sawyers etc. Look at
the Cedar getters in Queensland, the timber industry in Tasmania and
Victoria and NZ's forestry industry.
All relying on sawyers for converting logs to useable planking for
weatherboard homes, shipbuilding, flooring, and cabinetmaking.
We'd all be stuck without the timber industry!
