While we were finishing the last of the fir tree planting in the area where we had logged last year, Jackson, the dog, found a tall stump to do a little supervising.
This stump is taller than most. Usually the cut is made much lower so there would be less waste of un-harvested wood. This tree however had been growing in the fence line and over the years, had been used to anchor the wires of the fence. The wires had grown into the tree and it would have been dangerous to use a saw in and around the wires and attachments.
As you can see, the stump is not totally useless. Jackson seemed to enjoy his supervisory roll, if only for a short time.
