Andrew, welcome on board. ;D Nice looking sticks in those woods. :) We've got no more snow up here than you, about all gone with the mildness. Not too good for sledding (see avatar). ;)
Move'n on.

Welcome Andrew

Good pics. Looks like a fun woods to work in during the winter.

Are the logs heading for firewood operation or sawmill?  Your sawmill or ??
If yours, band or circular?   Enough questions for now.  ;D

props on the skidsteer.  they're great for this type of work.
Always try it twice, the first time could've been a fluke.

Thanks guys, the equipment that I have is mainly used for landscaping and construction in the summer months. So I try to put it to use in the winter if possible. Beenthere the load in the photo is red ash to be used as saw logs, not my mill though.

The trailer is a 14 footer corley5, they are handy to have have around for sure! :)

I was thinking to myself, that looks like ash woods we have here.  8)  Red ash is green ash in the US. ;)
