I can see some folks need an all expenses paid trip to "Mystery Trees".  8) Seein' a 300 footer growin' on another tree's branch is quite a treat.   :o

I don't think they sawed logs that big although there may have been a couple mills that could handle logs that big. I think they blew them apart with explosives and sawed the pieces

Large trees.......yes they are still here in the NW.

This is Washington's current coastal DF

Oregon has one 36 feet 6 inch circumference........329 feet in height.

The biggest are probably still not located in either state. 8)

Vinking, I had to delete your photos. They must be under 15k and be on our server. I had some complaints about these pages loading so slow with your photos. Please format and repost only those that belong to you. Photos from other sites are NOT allowed. They MUST belong to the person uploading or you MUST have explicit permission to use them.

I don't want to dampen your enthusiasm, its great, but we have to follow some set guidelines here.

Gif will never get under 15, and they must be on our server. I wont take the chance that a month from now our forum is full of little red x's.  Purchased photos of other peoples equipment is of little interest here. If you have photos of equipment you run or deal with and can tell us something about it thats great.

Go to tools/uploading photos to get instructions.

C-4 Tree Farmer Cable Skidder; 1960 Vintage. Parked next to a Case 600/800 forwarder with Barko loader.

The C-4 originally had a gas engine but was converted to diesel with a 128 Ford 4 cylinder diesel engine which they tell me fits right in to it. Lee hardwoods timber harvest, 1/04.
