  I sawed a few days last week and this week here. They had me move in the mill to cut a few logs, and it turned bigger and bigger. They take smaller diameter trees and turn them into posts for pressure treating.
  They have accumulated all these logs that are too big, and decided to saw them. Most are 10-12 inches. All from this summer, had water on them until it started to rain. The majority will be sawed into 9/4 so that speeds up production.
 
 
 
There is a little loader there and it's mine to use, their fuel and everything. They also have a forklift and a 966 so I'm pretty well covered material handling wise. I'll be able use my backhoe on other jobs while set up here to saw.
 

  Also some walnut, oak, and big doug fir is piled up and waiting. Heres a walnut I opened up.
 

  Heres a days sawing of 5/4 pine, about 1900 bf.


It'll probably add up to about 100 mbf or so.  Should keep me busy until summer comes and I can get out in the woods.

What a beautiful walnut! I really think it is one of the finer looking woods.

  Those yellow tags are from some research about plantation harvest. They thinned a small area, numbered each tree and log, and then each board from those. Trying to see actual production in smaller diameter I guess. I think the plantation was from the late 60's.
  There's several even nicer looking walnut logs, I will take some more pics as we cut them. I have log envy just like the rest of you--I'm not sawing it for me, remember :'(
