The largest of a number of trees cut to clear the area for the barn

The selected area just west of the cabin. Started cutting trees, and brush. Used the Kubota with the front loader to clear most of the ground, a bit like a bull dozer, pushing the smaller trees and brush out of the area.

The largest of the trees was this hickory tree, actually two trees from a single stump. The one shown was 76 feet tall. Much of the wood was donated to a local restaurant that features smoked meat.
