Lumberjack Protectron does not want to lose lumberjack job to cheap human labor.Lumberjack Protectron

Gilman lumber mill is a location in the Forest region of Appalachia.


One of several lumber mills working the bountiful forests of Appalachia, Gilman was notable for heavily investing in a robotic workforce, steadily eliminating real lumberjacks in favor of robotic ones, custom tracked Protectrons.[1]


The layout of the lumber mill is a large fenced off rectangular area. Inside this area are a half-destroyed main building, wood scraps, and a tinker's workbench. Next to the main building is a warehouse filled with log piles, more wood scraps are inside. Outside is a fairly flat area, suitable for creating a small camp. Speaking to the lumberjack Protectrons occasionally will result in the robots providing some additional wood scraps to the Vault Dwellers to use with their C.A.M.P.s, especially if fresh out of Vault 76 after completing "Reclamation Day." There will also be a couple of spots nearby where a wood extractor can be placed via a C.A.M.P. to have a healthy supply of wood for building the C.A.M.P. up in the early parts of exploring Appalachia.

Notable loot

  • A job opportunity - Note, on a crate on an exterior catwalk next to a skeleton.
  • Many wood scraps - In the brick building in carts, inside the warehouse next to crates and from log piles.
  • Several boxes of loose gears - On several of the tables and workbenches in the ruined mill building.


Gilman lumber mill appears only in Fallout 76.
