Thick trees!

This week the Terra Firma Forestry crew is doing work up in Cotopaxi, Co -- Spruce Basin Subdivision.  The trees are diverse but very thick!  They are healthy with the exception of too dense of forests and trees overhanging the cabin.  We are dealing with these problems by thinning out the trees to a more natural stand density.  And Caleb Hathaway, our tree climber, is removing limbs and a tree that is too close to the cabin.

The forest is also having issues with the Spruce Bud Worm as well as the Gamble Oak defoliator.  Creating a healthier forest will help trees deal with these insects naturally and will increase their health and vigor.

CurtissJones is one of our incredible sawyers this year and is working on the crew to create the healthy forest that our client is looking for.  Thanks Curtiss!

Creating furniture with Lumber from portable saw mill

Today our tree climbers removed a large ponderosa that had died a couple years ago from road construction damage.  Because of it's size and beauty, our client wanted it milled into planks and made into lumber.  The lumber is being made into furniture by Jason, Alpine furniture, in Leadville, CO.

Summertime in the forests!

Our Forestry crew and Arborcare crew are in full swing.  We are loving the afternoon rains and beautiful mornings.  Thank you Central Colorado for taking care of  your trees and forests!!

Fall colors

The Terra Firma Crew loves working in  the fall colors with crisp, clean, Colorado mountain air.  We have been working in Leadville a lot lately.  Today we are in the cottonwoods in Buena Vista.  The picture is last week in Fairplay as the crew thined out some dead lodgepole pine trees near a cabin.
