    Ha, tired brain. The other crew was in the same area last winter and were in 3-4 feet November through April. We got lucky this winter.

    Its all good, think they are rainier or mountain cherries? Native here in the PNW and not much for making fruit, unless you water them a lot and keep em pruned.

    The wood is the same color as yer version, but the bark is very different, If it where a native Birch it would have white or yellowish wood. The bark looks a whole lot like Birch, but the leaves are different, I think one is more grey brown, the other more of a pink brown? I is color blind and Pinks-Browns are the worst, both end up more or less beige. Once the leaves where to come in, one has a more oval shape, the other more of a triangle, and are a whole lot easier to figure out.

    I don't run into em real often and usually never over 4-5" as the Alders, Cotton Weeds and Maples will crowd them out pretty quick. That and its not a "cash crop" out here, so its never planted.

    We do have the occasional large cherry. Our native species is a tiny little spindly thing (P. vulgaris) but there's an escaped cultivar that occasionally sets up shop in DF stands between 20-40 years of age. I've cut them 60-80 ft tall in unthinned plantations. They sort of give up the ghost taller than that and die out under the canopy but they do hang with the fir for a few years. I'm guessing that's what you have there.

    Our cherry out here is a good way to bend a harvester bar or break a chain real quick every chance I get I rip it out and toss it into the stand.

    I've cut em 3' on the stump and straight A's an arrow no limbs to sixty ft but that's not the norm. Usually small twisty things. Used to be pretty high dollar. Kind of a pioneer tree that gets shaded out and dies like you guys are saying. Black cherry here.

    3 of em and you're feeling pretty good as I am now. Knocks the aches and pains of the day down anyway.

    I forget what species the non-native I most commonly find is. I'll grab a pic next chance I get. There's a stand about 100 acres that has a lot of them in there. They're about topped out so they'll be dying soon.

    When it's wet and cold, I'm pretty big on single malt scotch and scotch ale at the end of the day . Kind of like a reset button.

    I'm really seasonal with the booze. Fire season is all PBR -- cold, cheap, plentiful. Winter? Usually really citrusy IPA's or scotch but this year for some reason I've been really into red wine. I can't explain it. It happens every ten years or so.

    Was gon say we have yellow, white and silver Birch here, and that didnt look like any of them. Yellow Birch is my favorite to cut soon as the chips start flying it has this delicious sweet smell that always makes me hungry and I always seem to get hit on by the ladies more when I've been cutting yellow birch lol. Nice looking cherry though and smooth drop.

    The old 653 is headed north to her new owner next week, the new 1270 has been a dream to run everyday production is up as well as fuel consumption is down in the 3’s an hour.

    Lol There’s places I miss the fixed head but the reach is nice so is the production. Have you been around the 415 Waratah head?

    Never worked it personally but looked closely. Mine was the 480. there's a bunch of them around here. I like the design, wish they would change hose routing. Only trouble I've heard of is with chain tension, but I think that's worked iut
