With temps in the 40's and 50's for the last week and 4 feet of snow on the ground its pretty wet and sloppy and hard to work too many places. A small hand cutting crew cut this job but didn't want to risk cutting near these powerlines so they left a 50-100 foot buffer strip. So I've spent the last few days thinning that buffer strip down along 3/4-1 mile of pole line. Not the most fun and much more stressful than cutting in the woods someplace but at least its work.

 I'm always impressed to see the pine you guys cut up north, it can be hard to find good BIG wp around here sometimes. That picture is from a few months ago walking wood with my father, I've been cutting the HW off this lot when I've got time, 250+ pine like those that go on the lower half. We used to send alot of pine slabs to Northville, "ADK" pine, 😂 from the Catskills.
 

 
  I should be home playing in the mud /cutting wood, my relief begged me for another week home so like a fool I said ok,  😂 17 days of fun and games so far, this was weds meltdown, "maintenance" around here for alot of stuff is, "run it till it dies", directly opposite of how we do it at home with our stuff.

One big thing I see different from 99% of the pictures of your guys forest compared to ours here is  you guys have very little under bush , our forest here the under bush is real thick and you cannot see very far , the foresters want that and really hate seeing a bush with a clean floor

I know of 1 other place locally with nice big pine and they are almost too big and starting to die. If I aspired to cut the nice HW in volume like you have up there I would starve to death down here if I just cut good logs and had any payments to make. 😂
 There's no undergrowth/ brush on these couple lots because of the soil. It's a sandy topsoil, the small stuff has choked anything else out from growing, it is almost close to washed sand for the first few ft, then ribbons of beautiful #1#2 round stone. We have been trying to buy this place for 10+yrs and my father did a few months ago.

I had some big eastern white pine,as in your picture. The under brush,kinda like that. After cutting all the big pine,can't even walk through there now. My Father said we need to cut a road for the pine to fall into. We would cut all the trees we thought would get knocked down. Looks so diffeant now. Don't look like the woods that I grew up in.

Some beautiful pictures of large white pine and hardwood on this thread.  Unfortunately I don't get to cut much of either as most properties around here have been raped pretty hard over the past number of decades.
Lots of toys for working in the bush

Same is true around here. Occasionally we do find a stand of nice ones and with luck they aren't full of red rot. The photos I posted are from a 10 acre lot that is across the road from the 500 acre parcel we have been working on since 2012.

reason is the foresters believe that with no under brush the bush is not healthy and they are correct on my ground, Bush with no under brush always seem to fall over here , it might look real good but come back in ten years and most of the bush has falling over . That's why when I say you cannot use a forwarder here in the bush, way to much under story to drive through and by-law will not allow that , long cable and sneak the tree out without damage to other trees
