According to Mr. Horace Butler, there were two logging landings in Bladen County.  International Paper Co. had a pulp wood landing above Elizabethtown.  These logs went on to the mill in Georgetown, SC by way of the Intercoastal Waterway.  Southern Box - Plywood Co. had a veneer landing.  These logs went to the mill in Wilmington.
