Nah just a lot of trees down.
Thought I show some pics of a typical Autumn at our place. Had a busy day yesterday.
This is my firewood for 2023. The pics don’t give a good indication of size (they look smallish) most are 600-700mm (2’ -2’4") through at the cut and I measured one at 35m long (around 100’) and the rest around that length. So they are quite big. There is 12 in total on the ground
Gives me my annual Adrenalin rush as falling them can be very anxious. Have I judged the lean on the tree right, has the scarf and backcut been cut accurately enough? They be killers if not fallen correctly.
Even after 30 plus years of falling trees I still have a healthy fear and nothing taken to chance.
You can have problems when your in the middle of the plantation with falling trees hanging on others. A situation where many deaths have occurred over the years. I got the falls spectacularly right this year.
You might have noticed the trees were cut from the base of trees cut 18years ago. Most Eucalypti coppice in that they regrow 2-4 trunks on the stumps so the plot is self sustainable for a couple of hundred years at least.
Now to cut and split and dry over 2 summers.
