We’ve had front-row seats to a logging project this month.
They started around the middle of December.
At first it was just a couple guys with chainsaws.
At times they used this crane to lean against the tree to encourage it to fall a certain direction.
And the tree falls to the right.
It’s getting thinner over there. My view is opening up.
See the measuring tape on the logger’s hip? That’s anchored to the end of the tree. He’ll trim branches until he gets to the length the log truck will haul. Then he’ll cut the trunk, retract his tape to the new cut and keep trimming for another length.
They’ve just got a few more to do after today’s logging.
We’ve had a little bit of fog in the mornings but it clears up before noon out here near the coast.
