The town of Timber, Mississippi, is a place where everything seems to be coming together.
The old-fashioned way of life is flourishing, the small town’s population is expanding and many people are making money.
But there’s one problem: the town is losing a lot of timber.
As the town sits at the northern edge of a national forest, the area has been used as a refuge for illegal logging for more than a century.
Today, the timber industry is the fastest-growing industry in the United States.
Timber rattlers nest in trees near the town of about 2,500 people and have been known to hunt for rattles and snakes as far north as Florida.
The problem is that timber rattles have become a pest.
The rattles come in all shapes and sizes.
Some are as big as a car and others are as small as a rattlespin.
The rattle that comes out of the wood, though, has a different taste.
That’s why many people in Timber have decided to start a business to save the rattles.
The wood rattlers are a nuisance to wildlife.
There are hundreds of species of rattles, and each species is known to cause different kinds of problems for wildlife.
They can cause damage to vegetation and wildlife by attacking nesting birds and deer, as well as the bark and bark debris that makes up bark.
They also can cause serious disease to deer, rabbits, mule deer, coyotes, foxes and opossums.
In addition, timber rattlers often can’t be controlled because they can’t eat bark.
The population of timber rattling has declined over the years.
But it’s not just the animals that are affected.
Rattles are also a nuisance because of the amount of timber that has been cut.
According to the American Wood Rattler Association, more than 400 million tons of timber is used annually for wood products in the U.S. Wood is the mainstay of American homes and is used to make furniture, carpets, mattresses, flooring, floor mats and many other products.
In recent years, the American furniture industry has suffered from the impact of lumbering, with some manufacturers having to import more timber because of lower prices.
That has created a growing need for a wood rattler pest control company, which is now in Timber.
“I was shocked,” said John W. Stegall, Timber’s general manager and an emeritus professor of biology and ecology at the University of Mississippi.
“I thought, ‘No way this is happening here.'”
Stegall began working with the UMKC Center for Environmental Education, a nonprofit that works with rural communities and has a long history of working to reduce the environmental impacts of timber use.
Since 2007, the center has been using a combination of public education, research and community outreach to help educate Timber residents about the threat of timber-related diseases and pests.
That work has helped the group become the first non-profit in the state to receive federal funding to expand its pest control services.
At first, the group used the money to buy and install surveillance cameras in Timber’s community and work with the town to create a website where residents can learn more about timber rattler issues and help keep Timber safe from these pests.
Stengall said the camera work was part of the group’s work to educate Timber’s residents about what they could do to help save the trees and to help make Timber a more appealing place for wildlife to visit.
But the effort was short-lived.
In 2008, Stengalls son-in-law, who was also working in the timber business, had an idea for a way to use the cameras and other surveillance equipment.
He asked the group if they could buy a camera for Timber.
That led to the purchase of a surveillance camera system from an equipment company in the area.
The group was able to use a camera system to monitor the movement of wildlife around Timber and was able identify and kill rattles in Timber at a rate that was higher than any other wildlife control group in the country.
The cameras also helped prevent the destruction of trees by rattles during the logging season.
The timber rattle issue wasn’t just about timber.
It was also an environmental problem for wildlife because of their impact on the forest’s vegetation.
Since the cameras were installed, the population of Timber rattling and other pests in Timber has declined by about 50 percent, Stegalls said.
But, he said, the most important thing is that Timber’s population has increased.
“It’s the biggest thing we’re doing right now,” he said.
“We’re not going to get it back the way it was.”
