I spend a couple hours in the wood lot this morning, what I am doing is taking the lower branches off the pine trees.
This is what it looks like afterwards, I am removing the branches for about two meters.
Most of the trees are red pine but this one is white pine, notice the smooth bark and how evenly the branches are spaced.
It was mostly sunny in the morning but started snowing after lunch, about 5 cm on the ground now. It was -5 this morning and the high was zero.
I played cards in Hampshire this evening.
