The Tree Fellers is the third drawing in the series portraying of the characters of the workers who built Australia. While we may not agree today with what they did, we can admire the strength and tenacity of these people who went into the pristine rainforests to seek their prized timber using only hand tools. What we have today are only remnants of those majestic rainforests with a few precious examples of the mighty trees that were once so commonplace along the east coast of Australia.
