Seems like corn isn't worth much this days.  I bet that trail is gonna end up a little wider than you think, if your pulling a twitch behind you  :)
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Ya I'm sure it would. :) I actually was on the way back to a gas well site that we were finishing off with some accumulated topsoil from the mill yard. So I won't be skidding anything thru there.

Those of us who work in forestry are often in areas that offer good views.  Let's see them.

Coxy, it looks like second growth. But I'd bet twice cut before. Ken can give us the story.  ;)

Yes here in NB you can go through areas of mostly spruce-fir-pine softwood, then into maple woods, cedar, aspen and then a mix of everything.  :D

And not much real big wood left, it's been all cut the last 3 decades and the older cuts have 8-10" wood, if it's faster stuff like fir and aspen. So you could drive for miles around settled areas and comment on small wood. It's small because it ain't that old. Or so thick it ain't growing much. :D

Coxy,

This area was once cleared for farmland.  It then was a Christmas tree plantation that was left unattended.  About 12 years ago the owner did a thinning to reduce the density.  It blew down on July 4th.  The area was nearly 16 acres and produced 1350 m3 (500+ cord) of predominately fir studwood.  Would have been a nice block in another 10 years.

My office is flat as a board, so not too many scenic views down this way...



Log deck on a 32 acre clearcut...it was a little muddy that day but it's dusty now!



Big pine makes the cutter look like a toy



At the end of the day it's always satisfying to pass a load of your logs headed up the road to the mill

Looking at big pines and watching them hit the ground is scenic to me.  Looks like some nice volume in that stand.

That picture sure captures the scenic beauty of the island

Ken,

I cruised it at right around 14mbf/ac of pine and it cut out right at 15mbf/ac...I guess they were a little better at utilizing topwood than I figured they would be :)

@240b,this will refresh your memory,


I like to go to whatever post or start a new topic first to include a picture.Go to your gallery,it will open in a new window.Click onto your album,then click onto whatever picture you want,it will get bigger,than scroll down a little to find,Insert Image In Post,click onto that,click Yes and that is it. Some have to copy/paste the link to work.I like to hit the enter key at least once or twice to move the picture down away from what I am typing. The enter key really helps to leave some white space if posting more than one picture. Somewheres I think it says to add 10,000 to your user number or something like that to make a clickable icon to your gallery under your user name. Use the preview button to see how it looks and modify it if needed.
