That thing pulling that log I thought was a Lombard log hauler, then I saw it didn't have tracks.

Its a shame that a Lombard wasn't available, looks like there is a lot of lumber that could be dragged out of there.  Hope there will be more cutting coming, especially some of those leaning trees on the uphill side that I see in some of the pics.  Those are blow-downs just waiting to happen.

Hey Mike as a side note,  what do you think of ROWMOW converting a couple of the Koppel chassis to log car bogies.  There is some great vid's on YouTube of similar set-ups that are in daily use on logging lines in Europe.

That's quite a crew in the photos, but I don't see Fred.

Fred was able to join us, tending to one of the fires closer to the end of track. And of course he was smiling

Hi John,

Some of the trees will be cut eventually, but our intent this winter was and is getting the ones out of the way for construction. Next winter we can take a train in and do more removal if we decide to.

He'd be smiling more if he had a chainsaw in his hands. :D

Astounding amount of organized Clearing and Grubbing!
Better slow down or you'll run out of trees!  ;D
Very well done.

If you think you have run out of trees, call Fred! He can always find a few more trees to cut!

By Spring, we should have a good start on a log yard at the future saw mill site.

Starting to look good there guys and lots of future lumber for the sawmill (wishful thinking).  Glad to see so many Stihl chainsaws on site.  Have used many different types over the years and they are the best IMHO.  I'm currently on my 3rd Farm Boss here at home.

I sat on that stump also. Just took a walk down to see how they were doing. Just a couple of hundred feet left when they get the permit. If it's good next Sat. the crew will work North of the brook.

Actually the Official Museum Chainsaw (tm) is Husqvarna.
