With these wonderful gifts we can make lumber to build a myriad
of things or sell to the mill for others to build with. We don't usually heat our house with the very best that the forest has to offer, we use trees that have died naturally and that have been standing dead for a while so as to be nice and dry. Or if we have to clear trees or do other logging, there is usually part of the tree that becomes firewood for us. Also, with the mill, we have a lot of "mill ends that work for firewood.
It's kind of funny. When I walk in our woods, I look around, but when Gerry walks in our woods, he looks up! We'll be walking along and all of a sudden he says, wow there's a red fir that's dying, it'll be a good saw log. Or, that will be good firewood. Or, that white pine will make some nice clear lumber! I don't know how he keeps from falling!
I love our woods, there always seems to be a cool, secret place waiting to be found.
Blessed are you Lord Our God Creator of the Universe.
