Talking about douglas fir, that brought back Edmund’s memories when he joined Kuya Lito in supplying electric posts to NEA or National Electrification Administration. Kuya imported the wood poles from Alabama. Edmund said maybe Kuya Lito became popular in the whole town as the one who got all their trees. That was a long time ago, maybe 30+ years ago.
