One of my Bordeaux, WA connections sent me an email today with the title being about “Monster Trees” with content about logging. I’ve been asked many times if I know what was the tallest fir tree logged in Washington state. Sadly, I do not. But if the pictures in the blog post at SBYNEWS entitled before Chainsaws Logging Monster Trees don’t provide any reasonable examples of one or two, I don’t know what will.
Here’s an example of one from the article that makes me question whether it was just one tree or not. If it was, all I can say is “Wow”.
I know the photo above is small but you can see a larger one by following the link above to the site. You might have read my earlier articleold growth logs.
These pictures bring up all sorts of questions like, “how did they get those big trees down, how did they load them on the trucks, and how could that small looking truck haul that big log on a dirt road”?
