I have found a project where a number of Eucalyptus are being remove to make way for a new freeway interchange. I have been told they are working tonight when they can close a land of the freeway. I am due to arrive to their site at 4:30 AM to load out serverl Red Eucalyptus and possibly a stringy Bark Eucalyptus. I will be taking my CAT to the site to load the trailer. I will need to return to the shop, unload and go back to the site to retireve the CAT. I expect the day to be about 10 or 12 hours .

Once I get the logs, I will send them to the sawyer for cutting. then I will be able to see what I have.

I’ll keep everyone informed of the out come.

Great score!....I am trying to get some wood off my neighbors black oak that fell during the storm…..there are alot of trees down….and if you keep your eyes out at some of them – and at building sites like your found…there is some great stuff to be had.

Way to go – It’s always good to keep tuned in for developments that fell trees.

Looking forward to seeing what you get out of it.
