Saturday's Harvest

I snuffed 4 trees on Saturday, a couple which were forked at the stump. This yeilded 7-17' timbers, 4-12' timbers, and a large diameter 8' trunk. A couple of the trees were doty in the bottom 6-8', this was caused by limbs decaying and funneling water into the trunk. The doty sections were cut into ~20" bolts to be split later and rived into roofing shakes with a froe. On Sunday the timbers were bucked to 17' lengths (my mill's maximum for now) , the remainders were cut into 12' and leftovers became fence posts.
