Timber!!!


We had a Douglas Fir tree that was leaning
way over our driveway....


We opted to have it removed safely
rather than wait for a storm to
take it out and block our driveway...


This machine manueverd all the logs up
closer to our house so we cna
more easily this summer buck it up
for firewood...
just another day in the wild woods of Weed....

Yep, preventative maintenance is a good thing.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I agree that it is wise of you to have this tree removed before it comes down in a storm and blocks your driveway.

Proactive timbering :)

I always thing cutting down a big tree is better left to the professionals. Who gets to chop all that wood into firewood??? Yikes, that's a lot of work.

Wow! That was quite a lean! :)

As much as i hate to have trees taken down, we had to get a few done, too, for similar reasons.

You will definitely get your exercise chopping that!
