We acquired a canadian made wood mill with a saw blade that can cut logs up to 2 feet wide. Most of the trees we are milling are only one foot wide because large trees cannot grow in a dense forest due to competition for sunlight, water and soil.
We inherited an over grown forest, thick with small trees fighting each other for survival. The forest floor was full of debris from fallen trees and branches. This pile up of forest debris is a great fire risk
First we cleared the debris and sorted it into piles for garden mulch, wind blocking piles and burnable wood. Thin trees were thinned and used fire wood and fence materials. Larger trees can be made into building material.
