My great-grandfather and his brother were "timber cruisers" circa 1875. They were the middle-men between the owners of big tracts of trees and those who needed them.
Most of the "cruising" they did was for the railroads in Virginia.

At that point they were done; someone else would get the business of cutting down the trees and getting them to the mill.
