So you don't forget, they call it the "northwoods" for a reason. There is still a mill in Birchwood that runs pretty much 365 days a year making different lumber products. Logging and the timber industry are very big in the northern half of Wisconsin. There are also many paper mills located "up north". I believe that everyone that has ever lived in Birchwood has worked in the mill at one time.
