Good pics

It's nice to compare the old with the new and the trees have fair grown.

Wonder if the old Trany van is still on the go. :wink:

These trees are particularly poor as a crop. The ones being harvested further down the lochside are breaking out about 25% log content, the rest is pulpwood for export to .......... Sweden!!!

The before and after pics are very interesting, Martin. What a difference.
Some people die at 21 but aren't buried until they are 65.
