    Most of this patch is Western Hemlock, which is pretty much worthless right now anyway, and all of it is getting diseased and rotting while standing. Couple that with sitting 100' back from a cliff that looks over the ocean, they ain't exactly the prettiest trees one ever seen..


    And the bark is packed full of sand, so I'm burning through the chains and bars like a rookie

    Do you run your chain that loose when cutting. My 066 will idle down and quit if I tighten my chain much more than what you have in the picture. I don’t really like running it that loose tho.

    I do not. That tree was immediately below new road. Nice and dirty.

    I shaved off bark on many trees to avoid the grit, not always practical when in smaller trees
    flood plain trees can suck

    AE016363-6329-4FD8-AF19-865BA601D0AD.jpeg B5AC47EF-A0F4-4D10-A26A-88A3ABBA7798.jpeg Last decently big one in our wood lot. We have a lot of dogs hair to log and process after this. Gonna trade it for oversized to run through the new Coutts portable mill. Skidder is finally running well, needs a bunch of electrical work and some tlc to seals etc and it will be gold, not a bad run in considering it sat 24 years in the bush before last spring. The new 572 fits nice behind the seat with a 28” on it. Having fun in the woods!

    So who gets to go around and pick up all the poles when you’re done?

    We use a 1210b with a custom built extension that makes the bunks out to 26’

    first one is me setting up trees for skidding, second one was me using a pusher tree, mostly for fun. Skidder was right there, could have used it but this was a bit more fun.
