Logging--Monday, November 15, 2010

A Timberjack feller buncher cuts standing red pine trees and puts them into a pile. The red pine trees, which were planted in the Leominster Water Department Land on Wachusett Street many years ago, were damaged by the 2008 ice storm.

A Caterpillar grapple scrapper pulls logs to the lot.
