This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading.

For this BB, you will be dragging/moving a large down tree 100’ for processing (sawmill, firewood, etc)!

Here is a related video:


To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
 - the large tree (more than 18” diameter, more than 8’ long) before moving
 - part way through moving the large tree
 - the large tree near the place where it will be processed (obviously more than 100' away)

I moved to the sawmill a large maple tree that fell across the driveway after getting some snow.
