[img width=359 8height=638]https://forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/18183/20151022_132108.jpg[/img]


cutting some real nice white pine on former Rockefeller property in central vt. Planted around 1900. Trees are running from 800 to 1400 bdft.  4-5 16FT logs plus pulp. Some of the trees are red rotted which can be disappointing when you bore into them...being hauled with Rottne Rapide forwarder. I will catch some more pictures soon.  We have about 375 of these to cut

Sat and had lunch in front of the dam today, just about done. 

 
My dad feeding the grinder. 5680 Bandit Beast, it's a shame I sent 3-4 trailer loads of nice big spruce and red pine thru it but between scale wages and 3k a day for the grinder it doesn't pay to wait. 

 
The bigger of 4 clearcuts I've done this last week. 

 
Waiting on them to finish stumping and grind again monday, go down below and clean 3 other spots up.

Moved to a new block that is also a partial cut in a very nice stand of predominately sugar maple.  Overall volume to remove is small but piece size is very nice.

 
Lots of toys for working in the bush

Are you clear cutting the old plantation or thinning it in an effort to prolong it's life ?? They have some nice timber in Marsh-Billings assuming that is where you are.

Not sure how many ppl on here clears power line right of ways but for those who do here's a nice little line I'm on. And yes there are live power lines in there if you look hard enough
A man can always use more tools, more space,more wood, and a whole lot more time.

G man,

 Yes that is the location.  Stop by for a visit if you want.  It is a thinning with some group selection.  Be done chopping the big stuff by early next week if you are in the area.

Sfires. Thats what the power lines through my woods look like. The power company abandoned them and just left them as a felling hazard. :(
Manage 80 acre tree farm in central Missouri and Mesquite timber and about a gozillion saguaros in Arizona.

 Fight to tow the loader back in, driveway has turned to mud again. 

    

   should just park my big fuel tank right next to it, she moves wood but has a drinking habit.

Where you've been TF ????
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. !!
