Cutting of timber was also very important and was a great source of income. The firewood and construction timber, which was not for personal use, was sold to Lombardy. Cleverly worked out systems were used to transport the wood from the mountain to the valley. First in the form of a slide and at the end of the 19th century, gravity was used to send the wood down along metal ropes. The whole device led from Mött di Còll to Coglio (over 3000 metres) via 16 supporting pillars.
The third activity that strongly marked the Valle di Lodano was the production of charcoal. Charcoal is lighter than firewood and was therefore easier to transport. It is assumed that the production was active between the 14th century and around the end of the Second World War. The black-burned charcoal burner places can still be seen.
