Solving the problem…

…of the fence board shortage.

With fence boards almost impossible to find, Curt has solved the problem by cutting down a dead oak tree.  We estimate it’s about 80 years old and the main trunk measures 19 feet by almost 3 feet around.

A neighbor has recently put out a sign advertising he now has a portable sawmill.  And we have a half-dozen oak, walnut and cherry trees down and waiting.

Inexperienced as we are, we’re not sure we can say “problem solved” but there’s every reason to hope we’ll be able to continue board fencing with our 300 acres of aging forest.
