Tis the season! Over the holidays is when we do all our felling. During the solstice while the days are shortest is traditionally the best time of year to fell as trees are the least active and have less water passing through them. This is an enormous white spruce that grew too big and is shading the apple orchard. The wood from this operation will be used to build infrastructure on the farm and all waste materials become firewood for the shop or mulch for the gardens.
