4,500-mile round trip from Michigan to Montana to work our land.
We have become very good friends with two local brothers (Billy and Roy) that have been in the logging business all their lives. We asked Billy to find someone to thin our land because we are scared to death of forest fires. Only one logging company came out, but they declined because about 95% of our trees are Douglas Fir and not worth their time. (Our property was a Christmas-tree farm.) We asked Roy if he would be interested in working for us. Since the sawmills closed and he was out of work, he jumped at the chance. He is clearing/thinning just using a chainsaw and no other power equipment! I have never met anyone that works as hard as Roy! Due to fire restrictions, Roy can only work thinning in the fall and burning the slash piles in the winter.
