The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. We are on step # 1,325,844 and our feet are killing us. That is also the amount of money this has cost us (in pennies not dollars).
|The first load of logs leaving to the Amish mill|
|A few days ago we went back to the beginning and finally |
picked up the last of the first tree.
|Then Larry the Tree Guy Senior a.k.a. Larry the Stump Guy |
came to work on grinding stumps.
A lot has happened since the Dangerous Trees series:
After the first round of cutting, we spent six days straight in the woods pulling out logs, cutting out damaged smaller trees and trying to restore order.

|Before (from the road)|
|Not every log is salvageable. If it can't go to the mill, and isn't suitable for firewood|
it goes in the pile back in the woods. This pile of decomposing wood is home to a red fox den
and mink and any number of other woodland critters.
Almost all of the debris has been removed. The town is coming to clean the ditch. After the ditch is cleaned we will put in a culvert pipe and access from the road. Then we will bring in more fill and finish the grading. And the good news is... when sitting on our deck the house is still screened from the road.
