I am looking for some ideas on how to use the bases of other big pine trees in the area to cable pull the fallen logs to the portable sawmill. I might rent a 4-wheel drive fork lift for a week if needed but we will have to see.

I plan on using every inch of the trees that I cut down.

Just a brain flatulence, but Pinova in Brunswick buys Longleaf stumps. It might be worthwhile to bring in a dozer and push the trees down. They take the stumps, you keep the trunks. The economics may not work out, but it's something to consider. Worst case scenario, you push the trees over, in a few years you have an unlimited supply of fat lighter.

Also dont take down more trees than you can process quickly. Here in central fl bugs pretty much much keep on chewing wood all year. round do them all at once you going to need to peel them and get them off the ground either that or aquire a taste for the rustic bug kill look . The ones i drag in in the summer will start getting borers in them within a couple of weeks if left in piles on the ground.
