Just in case you wanted to see what I got out of 10'-6" of that log on the left above, here it is...

I milled out (4) 4x5-1/2's,



and (3) 4x4's, as you can see in this pile,



and also a few inch boards that I didn't put in the pict.... Not too bad for a log headed to the firewood pile!!

I had a decent sized tornado damaged white pine out back that I've had my eye on... Anyway, I've been wanting to get it to my mill site and mill into some siding for a project I'm doing,



After cutting my way to it, I got started,



Because I have a skidding winch on my tractor, I cut a larger than normal notch in the tree and hooked the cable from the winch as high as I could reach, and tightened it up, then locking it,



With dead standing/damaged tree's, I wanted that cable tension... Anyway, the tree went over as planned and I then winched it out and off I went to my mill site,



Next will be to cut the logs out of it and mill them into that much needed lumber!
