Turning dead wood into sawdust
Turning dead wood into sawdust
From the other side of the valley, where I live, the noise sounded like that made by a helicopter. As the Army uses land in this area for military exercises, my neighbours and I assumed it was one of theirs. However, we had suffered the noise for three hours during the previous afternoon and were to suffer it for another three, the following morning. My curiosity got the better of me, which is why I took the photograph. It shows a hydraulic lift, perched on a tractor’s trailer, lifting lengths of dead wood with its claw, which were then dropped into a machine, which ground them into sawdust. This was then transferred into the trailer of the other tractor to be removed from the site, when the trailer was full.
