Milling wood

I know this seems harsh, but here in the self sufficiency reality, we need wood, we have trees. This redwood tree is approx. 40″ in diameter and 150 years old. It was growing in a thicket of thin fir trees off by itself. There are many other clumps of large redwood tree around the spot. These are too beautiful to cut. So is that one, but…

My husband cut this tree, and will buck it up, and move this log and a few others to the mill site. This saves us much expense!

This redwood will be milled into siding for another barn area. This is how we’ve made almost all the wood in the structures here.
