Just some pretty trees

I do believe that Douglas fir is one of the prettier evergreens.



Edited, is the grade a little less steep now? :D

There's a reason they call it the left coast.

Well look at it this way, you wouldn't need much for wedges and they won't have far to fall  :).  That is a nice picture Darrell.

That is a new way of "laying them straight".  No skidding necessary, just drive the log truck under them and whack um off.

I agree completely.

And the rest of you guys, quit making fun of Darrel. The mountains here in the West are steep.

Start at the top and run fast when you cut the last tree!

Clearly those trees are defective, they have the sideways disease. I'm feeling generous today so if you want to whack them and send them to me I'll send you some quality balsam fir in exchange.  ;D

Douglas-fir is a nice tree. I saw some big ones last summer for the first time.
