In the mid-nineteenth century the Comstock silver strike generated pressure for a timber harvest of historic proportions, and to meet demands for wood by Nevada miners, an army of loggers invaded the virgin forests of the nearby Truckee Basin
The Comstock silver strike meant that immense quantities of lumber were needed too build the mines. Loggers invaded the nearby Trukee Basin, set up scores of sawmills, and spent the next 75 years harvesting the virgin forest. Today little is left of this industry except rusting mill machinery, fragments of flumes and chutes, and weathered stumps.
