pine forests South Australia - In the far south-east of South Australia, some 3000 people live and work among the forests of exotic pine trees and associated mills. Half of these workers are estimated to be post-war migrants from countries like Britain, Holland, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Italy and Poland. Government owned sawmills at Nangwarry and Mt Burr in the Penola forest, handle more than 4 000 000 cubic feet of pine logs a year. German migrant Gustav Thiel, 31, takes case ends from a jointer. The machine makes the ends from narrow pieces of pine. Gustav is from Hamburg and has been in Australia five years. August 1958
