Ran across this old picture when posting to another thread.  Maybe not good for saw logs but great for looking at:

This is an old picture. The tree has since fallen over, been cut up for firewood and burned in my wood stoves.

Andries once we walk it in with proper trajectory and distance of pull on said inner tubes, we will then fire at will. Your job at that time is to find us some one named Will.  
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucus dedicated slaber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

I saved Pinocchio from getting mulched 😂. Actually the guy ran over to the guy running the machine to tell him to leave that one.
