This is our second pile we have cut this winter. For us these are good logs. Lots of nice straight spruce and good quality fir. Our count stands a 530 logs so far . Goal is 600 . Should make it

Bulldozed Post Oak.  The access to this field was so tight I had to take the little trailer....and barely got it through the gate.

You have your trailer set up about like mine. Winch on the tongue. I am up to about 85,000 BF that I have hauled on mine. Course the log yard is only about 8 miles away one way. I can take the trailer way back on the farm and haul out smaller loads rather than skid almost a mile. Can't skid big loads with the tractor. Use what I have to get it done. Course I only log part time now.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

 1 more Nor-easter and I'm getting on a plane for Tampa / Ft Lauderdale. 😂 Both of my skidders are back in on private roads, 460 isn't to bad, the road my 440D is on the town gave up on, it's almost 2 miles in from the black top, I'm not excited about snowshoeing in. 👎 





 that's the east end of the sawmill, that was cleaned out after the first storm.

Barge, when I first bought my log truck the first sale I worked on was 30 miles off the road, we have not finished that one yet, but did finish the next one which was 33 miles to the end of the road, and the logger had to keep every inch of it up. We moved back out to a new sale that is only 11 miles in, should start monday.

A couple of times this year we had to shut down till he could plow the whole road, plus cut the trees that had bent over the road, only to have to do it all again before we ever got back in. Mother nature has not been kind this year, plus much of the time it was too warm, and our stinking snow was more like lower 48 snow, it is snowing as I beat on this keyboard.
Old LT40HD, old log truck, old MM forklift, and several huskies.

 I was cutting wood in a T-shirt not to long ago that's the depressing part. This area in the state isn't set up to handle huge volumes of snow, we typically don't get what western NY does, this warms up quick we will need a raft. We plow alot of these private subdivision roads, people out of NYC who aren't the brightest sometimes, cabin stuffed back in the woods 1-2 miles in. "Burnt-Rossman" is the biggest patch of state land in my county and some of that gets out there, still not comparable to Alaska or out west.

This area generally does not get a lot of snow, but what we get stays till breakup, we have been unseasonably warm all winter for the most part, but she hasn't started melting yet, once it does logging is done till freeze up, unless we have an exceptionally hot dry summer.

No snow in middle TN.  One less thing to get in the way of working on all the other things in the way.
