We are starting to accumulate our log decks as beetle killed trees are removed. We are using a combination of snowcats and a machine called a forwarder to move the timber to the deck sites. The snowcats utilize a cable system to skid trees over snow while the forwarder functions like a logging truck on snow. Conducting these operations over our deep spring snowpack leaves the soil and ground vegetation undisturbed.
