Here are a few more pictures from our Tree Line Cherry job.
A farmer was removing a tree line that was encroaching upon his ability to maximize yields on his fields. Instead of burning all of the trees, we were able to salvage most of the sound ones for milling into lumber, here's a few shots during the process and unloading the cut lumber.
Peponi Woods is helping a local farmer recover the lumber from a stand of Spruce trees that suffered damage in a wind storm. About 12 of the 14 trees that were blown over are of a usable size and will be converted into lumber. Due to the wet year we've been having, the trees were uprooted by the wind. Though unfortunate that these trees were blown over before maturity, being uprooted means little wood damaged in the process. Here are some of the logs we've pulled out so far.
The milling process of the two Elm trees we cut down was split across different days so here are some more pictures. This was from milling the largest of the two trees we cut last week. Do you have dead trees on your property? Give us a call and turn your trees into beautiful lumber.
