Finnish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

tukki (log, stock) +‎ mies (man); the word was in use when the main commercial forest product was lumber and therefore only the heaviest trees (tukkipuu) were worth felling. The expansion of pulp and paper industry changed the term first to metsätyömies and later to metsuri.

Noun[edit]

tukkimies

  1. (dated) logger, lumberjack
