Peeling trees is my new zen place. Oh the bless of bark effortlessly falling in piles at my feet. I am building a modified junk pole fence. The first 12 foot junk pole section was framed with bark on. The ease of constructing the frame has inspired us to build another 120' of fence. Trees that had fallen during the snowstorm of 2019 were limbed, silly me I only took 2 pictures of limbing and not 4 as required, oh well there are more. The trees were cut into 11' sections so to cover the BB I barked 4 of the 11' sections and put them up to dry. In their next life they will be fence posts. If I need to show more done I have 14 to go.
Seems I have lost a bunch of images, and I'm not allowed to attach an mp4 time lapse that shows me peeling a tree. All the peeled timbers in the attached pictures, I peeled. There is one in progress and a couple yet to be started.
Sorry, before and after photos (or video) is needed for both trees
Tree #1 of my BB (need to cut another to peel, since I didn't realize they needed to be 6 inches in diameter. Only one of these is). These were both growing under our powerline. My husband cut them down, and my son actually did almost all of the delimbing. I did all the pealing. They'll be used ASAP to make an arbor for a jasmine plant that's coming in the mail.
