Tala Clandestina

During the early 1980's, I lived in the San Bruno district of Xalapa, Veracruz. At certain times of the year, you would walk out to the street and see vendors selling boards that had been harvested without permits, i.e. "tala clandestina", from the pine forests around the Cofre de Perote. Dragging them down from the mountain with burros shaved several inches off the back of the board. [NOTE: Hope I can find more images from Xalapa. This was a wonderful place and a wonderful time in my life].
