Harvest ends two-year storm damage saga

Harvest contractor Eberly Forestry used a John Deere grapple skidder to pull full-length trees to a landing during the September 2014 clean-up of storm damage in 2012 on Bob Austman’s woodlot near Piney. Some of the better sawlogs harvested were 15 inches or more at the base, with no rot or decay. Sixteen cords of logs were delivered to sawmill owner Rino Ouellet at St. Labre.
