The lighter side

Remember the pictures of the dark side?
Rick finally finished clearing the forest, all for one tree….it was 30-40 meters high and at least 2 foot in diameter, when he dropped it it reached the length of Georges’ feild (that’s how we knew how long it was). It was diseased and needed to come out, several other trees had to come out before he could fell the wrongun!
It was a difficult job and very steep mountainside, with no access, doing this stuff by hand took it’s toll and it took a winch and several burly men to push the dead tree down the mountainside. Our friend Wayne managed to jump on the tree and surfed it down…….all the wood is now on our land and is slowly being logged up for fire wood.
