Ken has selectively cut wood to encourage beautiful oaks. Now decades later the trees are shading the growing areas - garden, orchard, and field by mobile high tunnel.
So Ken has been felling the oaks. He will use them well: large trunk portions will be cut to lumber, medium branches will host shiitake mushrooms, small wood will heat the house and the smallest wood will go in the cook stove to cook our food in winter
Ken also had a younger man with proper equipment fell a dying maple that was between three sheds - one is our pottery show room.
Now Ken is cutting the fallen maple into smaller pieces.
I will help organize brush and help move wood
