A Redwood Stand Before And After The First Thinning
Thirty years after heavy logging, the "cathedral ceiling" has become an impenetrable maze of branches from the canopy to the ground. You must push branches to walk or see beyond a few feet. Thinning and limbing structurally transforms the young forest, lowers the fire danger, and begins to recreate the expansive understory of the ancient forest.
Does your forestland look like the "before" photo? If so, we can help. We will be glad to schedule a site visit to your property to help evaluate the situation. A detailed list of recommendations and procedures will be provided for you to review and implement. Or we can send in our fully trained staff to accomplish the appropriate clearing. Please call or contact us to discuss your particular needs.
Please note: We will mill logs for local people in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. We will do it for a percentage of the wood and no money changes hands. We will do this as along as the log(s) was from reclaimed work or was from a tree that blew over in a storm. We do not do milling trades from logging operations or other harvesting operations.
Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little. - Edmund Burke
