Alders grow like weeds on our property. They also make decent fire wood. Many of our Alders are 20-plus years old and are prime for cutting. A few days ago, as a blissfully sunny morning began, three Alders were felled and are being cut to dry and season for the winter ahead; which seems like a long way off right now but really isn't all that far, given our short summers.
Ya gotta plan ahead around here.
