Timbering

We had about 15 – 20 acres of pine trees that the CC boys had planted during the great depression. In addition, because of blight in the NE part of the country, they had to be harvested. Several of them had died already and as a result, we decided to clear-cut the area. Because of the blight, there is so much pine available that the only market is pulpwood for paper products. The good news is since the clear cutting, the area is covered with volunteer Black Cherry and Maple.
