Pine Tree Clean-up

Sunday was another fun-filled, sweat-inducing work day at NoTTafarm.  The weather was beautiful and we had some excellent helpers visiting from Kearney:  Ray, Jolene, and niece Lauren Jo.  First on the agenda was the clearing of two pine trees in the east pasture that had fallen victim to the dreaded pine beetle.  Scott was excited to try out his new chainsaw (thanks, Alan!)
Trimming the top off the felled tree.

Dad took care of the slightly larger tree.

Scott really enjoyed having his own gas-powered chain saw!

Notching the trunk.


The pinecones did not have a chance to fully develop.
Lauren might need a manicure - especially after all the
hard work she did at NoTTafarm!
