    I'm lucky and also unlucky being the size I am, I'm always put in those small places.

    I was thinking that you had a Genny in your truck. I have a portable 2000w inverter to hook up with the truck that will run a torpedo heater too.

    And you're floating on that? Pretty awesome. That's the coolest thing I've seen in a while.

    There is the root plates of the trees cut then a mat of tops and brush that you lay out under the wheels. Then you just make sure the forwarder doesn't load too heavy.

    You know in a thousand years someone is going to dig that tree up and think its the beginnings of some ancient temple or something.

    That's great, never thought of it that way. Maybe in a hundred years some greeny will find some of my old junk saw chains in their new virgin forest too.

    There was reported to be trees close to a hundred feet underground when the company started stripping overburden for one of the iron mines here in the 60's.

    Yeah I don't like that idea. That's how you get the "bogmen" they dig up every so often when cutting peat. I feel like you could lose a machine in the same way. Is it balsam? I see it still had green so not tamarack but I'm sure thats there too.

    Out here we wouldn't be allowed to touch stuff like that.

    Mostly black spruce, white cedar, tag alder brush and an occasional white birch. There were a few very nice balsam which is very unusual for this type of ground. They normally don't stray very far from rock.

    There is no danger of runoff erosion, no rutting, no moving water or defined watercourse. Also the nearest pond is perhaps a half mile away. This would be considered timbered lowland, not wetlands.

    What reason would you be kept away? Other than the little wood. This stuff is about 75 years old by the way.

    I'd bet they'd consider that a wet land out here under oregon's description of a wet land.

    They have a pretty loose idea as to what wet means out here, has more to do with the flora and fauna then any actual puddles or moving water.

    Gets worse if there is moving water

    Looks like they would fall under the "other" category. Most of these little pocket swamps are less than 8 acres.
