Default Chopping trees on the snowmobile trail . . .

. . . got to visit the brother in law this past weekend in VT,





what a nice place up there, and while breaking trail to the main one, we come across this big hemlock across the trail;








Back to the house to get a couple of chainsaws and get to work chopping the thing up;




After a little while, we are done and can pass on our merry-way;




Another day in the life . . .

As evergreen-wood is supposed to be not so good for burning, I think it will just be dead-wood. Plus, it is a hike from the house for a few pieces of wood.

* one of the better uses for Hemlock is, wood to be used under water or in water. Small dams or paddle wheels were often made out of Hemlock (turn of the century mills)....it stands up very well to the test of time!


It looked like a nice time Ben ....that's my kind of day out.
