Here's Don, hauling trees with his skidder in June.
This spring, several of our large pines were dead. Throughout the Cariboo, the result of the pine beetle infestation is evident everywhere - there are stands of mature pine that last year were alive and well, and this year are dead and brown. Our place was not seriously affected -yet. To be proactive and avoid the inevitable, we contracted Don to selectively log our lot. We were able to sell 8 loads of timber to West Fraser mills. We still have loads of trees, and a lot of immature pine.
In current happenings, the electrical contractor, who seems to have a patent on "Cariboo time", still hasn't gotten back to us. Everything else seems to be on track.
Two more sets of looky-loos are coming to view the house this afternoon. Off to tidy up.
