How and why
We shear our trees both with hand tools and mechanized equipment. As the trees got bigger, and more numerous, we have been forced to mechanize a bit.
Our worst problem: (eating and antler rubbing). Deer love the new growth on the firs. In late smmer and fall the bucks shred them with their antlers. You will see that every fir tree has been severely maimed by Bambi and his pals. And you will see how we have learned to produce beautiful trees on the deer-damaged stumps!
We have tried Fraser Fir and other non-native exotics - they have been a near total failure, thanks to Bambi and disease! We are sticking with the hardy native Balsam and Spruces. Balsam is as aromatic as any of the exotics, and Spruces are nearly so, and stronger - limbed.
We control weeds primarily by mowing. We let the milkweeds grow tall for the Monarch butterflies. It appears to be working - we've seen more Monarchs in 2017 and 2018 than in previous years.
WHAT TO WEAR?
We are at 1500 Feet elevation.
Expect it to be colder and snowier
than in surrounding cities.
Dress accordingly. Weeds and burrs
have been nearly eliminated,
but put a slippery jacket over your wool or synthetics.

It looks like a feed mill, because it was.
