Craig - To me if looks like evidence of a recent brush fire (examine charred wood right below the lower springboard) that may have raced through the forest floor. If that had been the case perhaps cutting fire-hardened bark was more difficult. Don't really know, just throwing out a possible explanation.

Craig Goodwin

You might be right, but a little burned bark never did any harm unless it was sold to a plywood plant where they were really picky.

Phil Hewitt

Are you familiar with Mosby Farms along the Green River? Burr Mosby was also raised in Sumner.

Craig Goodwin

Thanks Phil, I know only a little about Mosby Farms and met Clarise (sp?) when they had the farmers market. Nice family!
