Guest photographer Denny Barnes captured some awesome shots of Christmas trees being harvested from an area tree farm (not wild trees, so no deforestation). His description:
My dog and I took a walk in the woods today (12/03/2014) and I took a few shots of the Christmas Tree Harvest going on. They have been harvesting trees for about a month now and I don’t see how the trees can last until Christmas but guess they do. We were about a half mile away so some of my shots are large crops to see better. On the way back I shot a couple of the tree string rappers. The green one is for the average tree and the red one is for the very large trees (15′ to 20′). The helicopter with the big trees could only bring one tree at a time off the hill. Anyway, this is some of what I saw of the harvest at the end of Coon Hollow Rd out of Sublimity.
Too cool. Click on the thumbnails below to see the rest of the images. Thanks, Denny!
