    Craning of a cedar, tall but small fir, and a behemoth--150 feet tall, which produced over 2600 board feet! About 1000 board feet more than I guessed. We dropped the butt log, with the self loader nudging it, to save crane time and due to the weight, which had to have been close to 10000 lb. It was 27 feet long, and 32" inside the bark, and 1220 board feet by itself!! After, I led the log trucker to another job, which had about 1500 board feet of crooked, knotty Douglas-fir.. which saved having to firewood it, made for close to a 5000 board foot load, and should add a bit to the bottom line...
