Sad site visit to Copper King fire

TriCon Timber foresters listen as the USFS explains why it will take at least a year to begin harvesting the burned timber on federal land, and why so little of it will be made available. Meanwhile, Weyerhaeuser is already harvesting burned trees on their land and the State will harvest their
burned area next summer. To wait any longer jeopardizes the value of the timber and could cause it to go to waste.

Field trip with feds…

I’ll be spending another day in the field with USFS today, this time to look at Copper King burn to review and improve timber salvage production plans.

Yay. Water lines winterized!

Thank God these last few days of warm weather gave us a chance to blow out our water lines before a deep freeze hits. This is the latest I have ever winterized my lines, and the nicest weather for this fall chore that I can remember. Truly grateful we haven’t had a damaging cold snap yet, but no doubt it’s a coming!
