For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Logging Camp.
Logging camps are resource buildings in Tropico 5. They're used to cut down nearby trees and haul them off as logs, which can be sold as exports immediately, processed into lumber at a lumber mill, or further processed into furniture at a furniture factory. Logging camps will self-destruct once most nearby trees are cut down.
Being a lumberjack is a serious condition characterized by the sudden desire to sing about your occupation and whether or not you are okay. Other symptoms include trying to listen to trees falling when there is no one around.
