Day three, four and five

There have been some great moments on this project, none to really laugh about as incredibly dangerous, Rick nearly had his head knocked off a couple of times, thanks to his karate training he was quick enough to respond in time. We took out all the easy to access ones first (obviously) and the bigger one that were growing in the ditch to the left were left till last, they were all leaning the wrong way and we had to rig up various wire guy lines and a come along to get them to fall the right way without damaging any of the remaining trees, I’ll post some pictures of Rick processing the wood with his new mill, we’ll be back ilater in the year to cut the rest which will be even more interesting as the remining trees to fell are even bigger and they’ll be a 10 meter radio astronomy satellite dish in the way……
