Equipment faster 20+ years ago but the trees grow the same rate.

WELL, yes and no. Just like your garden, if you have too many trees growing too close together they will grow slowly and some will die before getting big enough to use. Thinning them once in a while reduces competition for nutrients, light, and water. Look at the growth rings of a tree and you can tell when there was a harvest done.

Today was 70 degrees, cloudy, and breezy. I thought it would be a good day to start moving wood into the 2023/24 side of the wood shed. For me it is pleasant work on a day like this.

Yes. I remember hauling wood with a friend. I was 15 maybe, friend was 16 using his grandfathers. Front was in the air more than on ground, all through the stumps. Can’t imagine doing it with the little tractor I bought my mother.

Grand L3540 ,724 loader, bucket, grapple and now forks also! And just for OP.. a pool!
When doing a clear cut it’s common to see stuff like that left especially when there’s not enough for a load.

Can they chip Cedar out there
Yes, SYP is BIG business here.. Lots of piles of logs around that wouldn't fill a truck at the end of the day. Had one here after a small clear cut I had done a few years ago, finally had a guy come in with a dozer this spring and bury what was left and a couple burn piles.

Looks nice... and MAN is that tractor shiny!! :D
It's still pretty new, one month old to be exact. I also put a coat of wax on it right after I had got it.
