Jepson Field Book volume 10 page 60
Briceland  by the North Coast Range Indians; Tan Oak, the bark used in tanning; Scrub Oak, from its low scrubby character. In general I prefer those names which are most widely established among the people and those are most widely [?] used where the name represents a feature visible or more or less striking to the eye of the observer surveying the tree as a whole, or from its habitat, or the economic use of the wood or bark. The name Digger Pine (widely used by the people and which in origin is a folk-name) is to be preferred wholly to Gray-leaf Pine, concocted by the botanist. ::::::::: June 13, 1903.  - A great many logs, especially largr logs, lie so flat on the ground that much bark is wasted -- and the best of the bark on the tree. Trees should be so felled that they can be peeled all around, as across a gulch, where this is possible. That is, a Tan Oak would often be felled where a Pine never would be. Again a small tree may often be felled across the "right of way" of a tree that is to come down and so keep it off the ground. Or it ought to pay to have a block under the end of the log. If the tree were good and ready for peeling the underside-of-the-log-bark could be saved easily. The block could be taken out with a crow-bar or small jack.
