I think I'd really enjoy operating that way, Ron. A small forwarder and a cable skidder, and hand falling. The problem up here is I don't think we have enough of the type of timber that would make it viable. 
Too many irons in the fire

This one is operating on National Forest land along a major snowmobile trail which is a designated National Recreation Trail in an area of blow down timber. It is a "light on the land" CTL operation on and along the trail under USFS management.

The cable skidder is primarily being used to pull the tree lengths off of the slopes and out of wetland areas where they are then cut into wood product lengths for removal to the landing/decking area with the forwarder for product sorting.

There is still a need for these small independent operators here, but they are becoming fewer and fewer.
