Cromwell harvested the pulp wood from MacMahan Island, located off the south end of Westport Island. He floated the wood over Goose Rock Passage to Westport Island in a boom, and loaded it onto the trucks of William T. Wright from Woolwich with a loader. Pejepscot Paper Company owned the loader, and their forester, Lin Rideout, supervised the operation.
