Looking good William, the back pile will have less end checking because the stickers are closer to the end, spruce is tough to saw, if he can saw spruce straight he can saw anything.

Sugerplum trees are only about 10 feet high and brushy like hazel brush have a beery like a blueberry when ripe but pinkish purple when ripe. I have never seen a tree this big. If I hadn't been brushing with a saw probably would have run it over with the skidder and not though about it.

Nice lumber.
I thought sugar plums were small shrubs.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Boco I have seen 20 inch mountain ash in my area on the lake shore surprised me at the time but made some beautiful lumber but never would have dreamed of a sugerplum tree this size maybe a record I haven't looked it up yet.

The mill is a 96 but works great. Myself and a good friend picked it up a few years ago for 12k talking with woodmizer the other day they said a order today would have a 4th quarter of 2023 delivery. That mill is about 55k new today.

Looking up the information on the service berry tree said they grow up to about 35 feet so I think this one is tall at around 60 feet.

I think what you are describing is actually Amelanchier, aka, serviceberry, shadbush, juneberry, etc.. Have a berry similar to a blueberry and many people make pies with them.

North 50 those are stickers in the back. That pile of wood will be ready to use in middle of June. Logs where cut a year ago so they are pretty dry now. Need to get it cut in the next 2 weeks before it warms up and the bugs get active.
