Old and Not-So-Old
Even before last month’s close call from a local wildfire, I’d been slowly working on improving the defensibility of our mountain house by cutting grass and sagebrush, as well as limbing and thinning trees. Well, I was slowly working on it before the recent fire, the speed of my efforts has increased significantly since there. As a result I’ve been creating a good stack of firewood for our woodstove during the cold weather. This part of the stack shows some of what I cut earlier this summer stacked on top of some from last year. The old vs not-so-old moniker applies both to how recently they were cut and the age of what was cut, i.e., smaller trees this year, larger last year.
