The first job of this year .... once the rain eases off, which will be a month or three away will be another run into this block.
 Just a couple of pics I grabbed while waiting for the dozer to walk down the road before Christmas. It'll give an idea as to the size of them, plus what the last guys left behind.



 

 

 

The last crew through here were cutting sleepers (ties to you lot) so they banged them off in ten foot lengths and left the rest behind. I'd say rot, or burn, but these things will be lying there for the next hundred years yet because it doesnt rot and mostly wont burn. Crashing off some of them stumps with a skidder or dozer in the long grass ain't much fun either. :'(

We can. The last harvest through there was around 30 years ago, but there's been 2 category 5 cyclones hit in the last 10 years, the second of which (2011) laid a lot of timber over in that place and also killed a lot of standing trees (too much salt in the air maybe?)

The dead standing stuff we'll take on a case by case basis, as with the down timber we bounce into. Sawlogs offcuts like the one pictured I'm not real interested in: none will be over ten foot long and there's limited demand here for stuff shorter then that, and it's going to be pretty much seasoned by now. Y'all hear us Aussies brag on how hard our timber is right? The dead standing stuff will be starting to tighten up after 4 years, but that thing and the others like him would be better cut with an angle grinder.  :D I'll try one or two to see because he'd make a good pile of 4 x 4's.... But I suspect the mill won't like them much.

Currently cutting a private 80 acre tract of decent hardwood. The logger in me is happy because we are clear cutting decent sized sawlog hardwood timber ($$$$), the forester in me cringes because I know it may not be the best silvicutural decision. But its what the landowner wanted and if I didn't cut it then somebody else would have.

Was clearing out for the dozer to come in and push a road in. By the time the forwarder got to those piles there was 2+ feet of snow on them so neat little piles would have been lost and forgotten.

Looks like that new to you 440 is earning its keep.  smiley_thumbsup
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!
