The Grand Tour of the Mill
From left, Howard, Chuck and John Zosel
Chuck and Eve received a warm welcome from the Oroville Zosel's today. We were welcomed by brothers and proprietors of the Zosel Lumber Mill, Howard and John Zosel. Howard and John, both with engineering degrees, are the third generation of Zosel's to operated the mill. They gave us a first class tour of the mill, including the dam site. We were impressed with the technology involved in the process of turning logs into lumber. The lumber industry has changed greatly in recent years due to forestry regulations, international trade and economic considerations. The Zosel's have responded with innovation and practical adaptations.
