How do yo suppose a lot of the Exotic Woods get from where they grow, to our shops?
I was responding to some comments on Grumpy’s Interesting Tree Forum, when I dove into YT for videos of horse-Logging. One thing led to another.

Now, mebees, some people with as much time on their hands as I have will come along with some fun things to look at.

Tony, you know what I’m talking about. That’s exactl how the sled in the “controversial” sled above was loaded. I only wish your video were in English, so I could understand the guy.
Lew, close, but no cigar.
I spent at least 6 hours, 5 minutes, and 47 minutes, watching various videos of big animals moving stuff, tonight. The strength and agility of such behemoths is addictive.

Interesting and fun to watch. The part that intrigues me so much about this is if all modern equipment was used what would the cost of some exotic lumber be.

Good stuff.

Now you know why Exotic Woods cost so much. It cost a lot to feed an elephant.

I’ve wanted a pet elephant forever, Mads. Why? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8yDH9ED760
And a pet camel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wae1Qu8fZg8&spfreload=10. They’re like real live Muppets.
