Decided I need to build a new barn. Lucky i have a snice stand of Norway spruce and white pine. Tall trees with no. Thermal cover properties,  leaving the tops  and piling few limbs need to remove, see have started bedding under and against the tops in a couple of days. Lots of young seedings been starving for light . Averaging 5 10ft logs out of a tree,  most average 20 in and a few are pushing 32. .  Board and batton to be cut and dried hopeful for construction this summer and truss/ lumber prices drop a bit

Snow has been kind of a pain for dragging logs out  but nearly done.

Im.sure the rabbits will enjoy the limb piles as well

Nice!  I need to get a pole barn up soon to keep my equipment in.  Definitely before i invest in a decent tractor.

 

How do you have less snow out there than we do?  I've been itching for a month now to do some land work.

Snow is better then mud and dirt that gets ground into the bark dulling saw chains and mill blades.

Thats awesome and will definitely help cut the cost down on a new barn. But don't hold your breathe on the price of lumber dropping......it's up there to stay for good....or at least a long while.

It's 90%+Hemlock, not as nice as you'd hope.  That being said, any proceeds go towards the "Fix the damn road" fund!  Not counting on it, but it would nice and move my "Nice Cabin" plans forward a year or two.  Some of that money is going to go back to the logger to clear a few plots on the side of the hill.
