Hi all! Has anyone has experience with harvesting trees? My family has an old farm in western NY state. Our neighbor pointed out how many dying ash trees we have. Have you heard about the emerald ash tree borer? Well it is decimating the ash trees on our property (as well as throughout the US & Canada). At the advice if our neighbor, we have contracted with a forester to harvest those ash trees as well as some of the bigger hard woods. The catch is that we have to BE THERE while he is harvesting & it has to be in the dead if winter when the soil is deeply frozen! I guess that is because his equipment is so heavy & our farm is otherwise pretty wet. So when we get the word from this guy, we will be heading up to our farm cottage. We will have heat & lights (thank god) & will be trekking around the property, communing with trees! Has anyone else had experience with harvesting trees?
