West Coast Falling ( Canadian style) I want to apprentice with an arborist. Do you know anyone in the Puget sound area that would take on an apprentice? williamslaura47@gmail.com
Why does he stand on the branch and not straight from the ground
Nice work bro . Stay safe out there in the woods !!! I watched this video many of times 👍🏻👍🏻 that cedar will make some wonderful lumber 👍🏻👍🏻
Less than 5% of these trees (> 500 yrs old remain). What you're doing is clever but should be considered criminal.

பத்து நிமிஷத்துல வெட்டி சாச்சிட்ட..

இதே மரம் உண்டாகனும்னா அடுத்து எத்தன வருஷம் ஆகும்
Dear Brad.

I am producer for Dutch documentary series VPRO Backlight. We would like to use a short excerpt from your video in one of our upcoming episodes. Could you email me at productietegenlicht@vpro.nl to get in contact about the possibilities?

Thank you!
The destruction of primary forest warrants imprisonment. 100%.
I have so much pride for my province rn
The man is hardworker and his work is so risky
Very bad
What a fuck8ng goof
I'm an avid hiker and I HATE this kind of thing with a passion. These old growth trees can take hundreds of years to grow and are more fire resistant than smaller, younger trees. Even if there aren't any trails through there, there could be. Build more trails, and stop logging and ruining the scenery for others! I do not want to gaze across an ugly clear cut during my hike. Don't come up to me and tell me we have way more than enough trees to hike through… we don't. If you hike hundreds of miles a year, like most avid hikers, including myself, you would realize that good areas are in small, isolated pockets in protected areas like wilderness, national parks, monuments, or state parks. These make up a very small percentage of total public land. Canada has even less of these Tier 1 protected lands than we do in the states.


Most of BC in Canada is chock full of clear cuts... I've scoured the images on Google Earth. The only places without them are the very few and small provincial parks and national parks. They pale in comparison to all the protected wilderness areas, national parks, and monuments we have down in Oregon and Washington. Yes, we do logging here too, but not nearly as much on public lands–most of our logging is pushed aside to private forests and state forests. I've hiked at least 800 miles in the last 6 years, so I have good experience with the forest and the effects of logging on public lands and old growth forests.




Because of the Northwest Spotted Owl, we proudly stopped most logging activities on ALL of our public lands. Canada, learn a lesson from us! Don't log away all your beautiful old growth forests. Instead, preserve them for future generations to enjoy. Even if there are no trails there, there is always a possibility of building more trails in the future. You can never have too much hiking trail mileage available to the public. It surprises me how oblivious people are up in Canada to their loss of their old growth forests. Down here in the Northwest, we're doing everything we can to preserve the last bits of old growth forest and wild forests we have left. Most of the Cascade Range is protected as wilderness, which has ZERO logging. The less you log away, the more hikers will come. That is one reason why most wilderness areas in the Northwest are such hot-spots for hiking.


Here is what clear cutting does. Here are the FACTS:


1. Fragments habitats via road building and cleared land.
2. Slash piles create fire hazards.
3. Smaller, tighter-growing, monoculture trees are far more prone to fires than the thick, tough bark and taller canopies of old growth trees.
4. Clear cuts ruin scenery for hikers and other outdoor recreationists. Even if there is no trail there now, it doesn't mean it isn't free real estate for building new trails in the future!
5. Sediment erosion into waterways.
6. Loss of old growth habitat
7. Loss of old growth forests for human enjoyment
8. Disturbed land makes it easier for invasive species and weeds to spread
9. Checkerboarding effect on the forest landscape, which doesn't look pretty or at all natural.
10. Destroys trails when built over them. Logging companies take NO responsibility on repairing (and maintaining!) publicly-owned trails after they come through with their logging equipment and ruin them. For years after that, the government needs to spend extra money just to keep all the fast growing brush and weeds out of the trail–if they even bother to at all. Sometimes they just abandon the trail after logging companies come through. Not only that, but it destroys the scenery and appeal of the hike, discouraging future hikers from even attempting the trail because they don't want to deal with all the route-finding issues and grotesque scenery at a clear cut site.


Leave your clear cutting to PRIVATE land, where you have a right to your own land, and the public is banned from accessing it, anyway. If it is public land, it should NEVER be open to commercial logging. Where there is demand, supply will increase. If we stop all logging on public land, private landowners will have to increase their timber production. It is a win win. We still get our wood products, and we still protect our public land and forests for the public to enjoy and for the local wildlife to thrive in. Don't even bring up "protecting logging jobs," because the outdoor recreation industry employs FAR more people than the logging industry does (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, Outdoor Industry Association).


I am NOT opposed to logging! But I am opposed to logging old growth forests, logging on public or federal/nationally-managed lands, and logging in places of high interest for hikers, other outdoor recreationalists, or wildlife. The only logging I support is when it is done on YOUR OWN land, (on private land)–with reasonable environmental regulations, of course, to preserve local waterways and our clean water. State land, federal land, provincial land, national land–all of it, should be off limits to logging.
