    Fascinating, and what a world-away. The scale of those trees is hard to imagine.

    I used to live in dry forest, in the Sierra Nevadas, Lake Tahoe way.

    There, the fire-return interval is 7-12 years. Western Washington, low level, near the coast is more like 400-500 years, naturally. Fire is an interesting part of the systems.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    I'm going to guess that it's either access related making the old growth monsters being the only ones worth taking, or location people/political pressure to not clearcut. You posted up that animation recently showing logging in BC. Clearcut is the most common form I see around.

    Thanks for posting all this Graeme, having moved to Tasmania and hearing all the 'forest wars' stuff, your explanations gives a lot of perspective.
    I reckon most of the people I talk to who are blindly against logging don't know this stuff, heck I didn't, but I knew that and would withhold comment, but at least gaining more facts helps demystify how the environment works, wherever we live.
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    Its funny, seeing those pics of stripped land in Aussi, well without Graeme's insight plus his extreme credibility, I'd would likely think very poorly of that scenario. But with Graeme explaining it, I'm like, hmmm, so that's how its done. Makes good sense!

    Hi all, very long time and no postings (sorry Butch!) life does seem to get in the way!! A few photos I just found on the phone from an old fashioned line thinning from the other year to a couple of some hardwoods felled for a friend when Iím allowed out to play still!

    Yea long walkabout!!! Still viewed from afar though and good to see you still keep it going man. Life changes but at least I know I can still drop in and there will still be a thread and discussion about short bar techniques ��
