Logging with horses today

Recommended Posts

i have for a long time wanted to do this! great post Kat1e, great photos and I am very very green with envy, what a great way to earn a living, and what a great way to work the forest from an ecology point of view.

 

Big up the horse loggers, may you long reign supreme over those horrible great machines.

Yo! Thanks Hamadryad :thumbup1:

Nice pics Plippy, I'm just glad I don't have all that brass to polish :biggrin:

Just to clear up something I said about the feller, (someone thought I might have been having a dig at him), not so! What I meant was, he is cracking on at a rate of knots, and we have to extract everything he fells, so that's why we will be there for a while yet. He's a top bloke, name of Pete from Stoke way. :thumbup1:

Nice pictures..

 

CJ, Do you have a rough idea of how much you're extracting on the average day, and over what sort of distance? And are there any deadlines on the felling to do with bird nesting and other wildlife?
