Logging Shamu

If you have use rights to a tract of forest and get all of the necessary permits, you can log a specified number of shamu (Cunninghamia lanceolata (Lamb) Hook.) trees to build a house. The Miao apparently debark the stems before transporting them to the village. [NOTE: Site is a household concession forest about an hour's walk outside of Xijiang].
