Which tree is always scared?
 A quaking aspen.

Last week we took down quite a few quaking aspens for peeling.  At one point one of the kids said something along the lines of, 

"Aren't we taking down a lot of trees?  Won't there be any left?"  

Nate replied with, "Oh, we're just cutting these trees down to keep them safe."  He pointed to a piece of the tree in front of him,  "Don't worry...no ones gonna cut this tree down."

Well...we thought it was funny...maybe you had to be there.

Many thanks to Bekah, Jarron, and Mary Ellen for allowing themselves to be eaten by mosquitoes, black flies, and deer flies just so they could have the experience of peeling logs.

If you want to help us peel or cut and split what we have already give us a call or email.  We'll be up working again this weekend.

Bekah - always with a smile!

Jarron skipped out on homework to peel.  

Not only did Mary Ellen bring us some awesome food (iced tea, strawberry/water melon smoothies and quesadillas) - she also stayed and peeled a bunch of logs!

Ella - sporting the bug net and the peeling spud!

Nevin - a peeling machine!

Yes, this probably violates some child safety law...but boy!  Zane is handy with a draw knife.

Denise just kept crankin' them out.

Nate just keeps going and going.

Just an aside...the creativity of children.  Nevin put together this rickshaw out of an old trailer and some scrap lumber.  The kids in the back were the drivers and Nevin was the horse.  Loads of fun with simple stuff!  Way to go kidos!
