    Skidders and skidding, is but one means of getting the felled trees to the yard. Same with forwarding. I would lump it under the catch all term of yarding. Even if if there is no cable-type yarding machine involved.

    I would say if you aren't in charge of the yarding, if that is subbed out etc, then you are a faller or a cutter. Or in Maine, a chopper.

    " Dumping trees left and right" would sound even better.


    So I shall call myself a faller henceforth.

    You're lucky, falling is the fun part, I would say. Clean up sucks. Unless you are just skidding or forwarding. But to do that all day could get boring I would think. When I logged I did both the falling and skidding.

    I hate working in machines. Always have.
    Richard loves it, so at one time we wanted to buy a forwarder, but we couldn't get enough work for it to work out.
    Pity, as it would have been a nice tool to have.

    Nothing better than some big iron to blow out the job.

    That would probably make a lot of Top Gear fans scratch their heads.
