Felled our first tall pine

We felled our first tall pine tree.  We chose a pretty bad tree.  As you can see this is one twisty tree.  It was over 90 feet.  We limed and bucked it into saw logs.  I'm not sure how the lumber will turn out, but it's a beginning.

My oldest son helped with the felling of this tree.  It was his first time taking down a big pine.  It's a little scary, but also a bit fun.

It was pretty amazing that the tree's curve just missed a small pine.

Here's the logs all ready for the sawmill.
