Another day at the lumber yard......
« on: January 15, 2007, 03:00:26 PM »

We spent a warm Saturday here in North Carolina trying out the new Husky 353 chainsaw by taking down about a half dozen dead or dying Southern Yellow Pines.  I left the largest for the end of the day.  It was a 90 ft tree that was between 85 and 90 years old.  With all that has been going on lately we have not been able to do much around the property since moving in in October. 

But with the wife on the mend we are spending more time outside. 

The tree fell in just the right spot and will make some nice lumber.  It was 20+ inches at the but end and I was able to cut about six 13 ft logs before hitting any real branches!  The needles had just turned brown so the wood is in perfect shape.

Now with a lot of obstacles in the way (a house, several tractors, solar kiln) I have to be more careful where the trees land. Now there is plenty of foder for the sawmill.  The next big project for the mill will be to start cutting the wood for the pole barn and for a loft over the kids play room.

All and all a great day.  For more info see our blog.
