The two new stumps add a sad accent to the desolate landscape.
One good thing about chopping down the trees:
Scott got the Ranger out to pull two large chunks of the pine to the milling pile. He'll have some decent pine lumber to play with!
The second good thing about chopping down the trees:The top of the dying Ponderosa pine was still in Christmas Card condition. Since framing of the new addition is to begin this week, we are going to keep this piece to use in the traditional "topping out" ceremony. We'll place the tree on top the new roof structure to symbolize growth and bring luck to the rest of our project.
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
