How Nice Ash Planes are made: A Big Ash load

It starts with wood, ash to be exact, grown and logged here in Kentucky. This is one of the rare occassions you go out looking for a big ash.

Here we see Holger, the logger, cutting lengths of ash down to size. His crew drops marked trees and drags them out to stage. After they are seperated by species, they are cut to the sizes ordered.

With the help of a CAT, logs are carefully loaded. Chech out that fat ash on the trailer!

Next stop, the sawmill…..
