Stump hauling is a big deal in the pnw. Lots of fisheries money for pulling out 20ft logs roots n all and hauling them to salmon streams. Trust me millions in federal and state fish money out here. A lot of non profit organizations get their money from federal grants.

Cut a softwood job up here in Northern New York where the state wanted all the tops left as they hit the ground . just drop , top and skid . The idea was to create habitat for the rabbits . I don't know if it worked , but it was the easiest job I ever cut !!!!

These people are creating ponds on creeks that a beaver would not even stop at for lunch.  Years ago the gov set about dredging every little stream to provide more crop and pasture land.  Having seen how destructive that was, the gov is trying to make every spring drain "navigable" so that they can deny it's use to the landowner.  The federal courts recently put that effort on hold.   Regards, Clark
