The lovely dry weather of late has enabled us to winch out some of the timber that has been felled over the Winter, when the conditions are so good we have to make the most of it as driving the tractor on the slopes is much easier and causes very little ground disturbance. This allows us to get closer to the timber meaning that we don't have to pull the chains and cables as far. The lengths of timber are now piled up on the old railway line awaiting cutting and stacking, this can be done no matter what the weather so can wait for the time being. It will eventually become firewood.
