Fun Facts:
In 1623 the first sawmill in the United States opened on the Piscataqua River near York, Maine. The sawmill was actually introduced before the town settled a year later. It was mainly built to export lumber to England since the colonies had an abundance of forest. England especially needed trees that could be transformed into masts for their largest warships – not a task for any average tree. Since England did not have suitable trees for the ships, they had to look elsewhere. In 1634, the first shipment of masts, from white pines, were sent to England.
