    Gday fellas
    Just joined after many hours scrolling through photos and the endless threads full of great info on anything timber and 2 cycle related, absolutly love this site.
    So i thought i would start a little thread of a few photos of some of the work ive done and just keep adding each week for those who are interested.
    I hope ive got this thread in the right spot forgive me if its not.
    1st photo is of 2 large girth silvertop stringy barks
    2nd is a load of firewood grade logs
    3rd photo it doesnt often snow where we are so it was a good photo opportunity

    Haven't been to Iowa. Been to California, Nevada, Texas, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, Hawaii and New Hampshire. More importantly, what sort of trees are there in Iowa?
