During the last few weeks when the weather has permitted, I have been out felling Birch trees. This is much work during the winter because before you can fell each tree, you have to dig down through at least one metre of snow to reach the bottom of each tree.
Once I had felled several trees, i cut them into desired lengths and loaded on to the snowmobile sledge and transported them home.
Last weekend (with my father-in-laws help) we cut the trees into logs
and I used Ingvar’s electric log splitter to slit the logs to help them dry. These logs we will use at our cabins.
