The Big Ones

Today we started taking down the biggest Quaking Aspen on the land.  It will take a few days to get them all.  That means lots of tractor work for Lloyd....which he won't complain about!

 When I asked Lloyd how long he thought the tree was he said, "65 feet".  I got out the 100' tape measure and they were......63 feet.  When you're good you're good.  With the tops these trees were around 80 feet.

We had a new recruit today.  Michelle got her first taste of peeling...too bad these logs were some of the hardest to peel.  Thanks for hanging in there!  Edna continues to amaze us with her pep and smile...even when peeling stubborn logs.
