Looks like I may have quite a few to cut and hang, Southern Pine Beetles I think, from what I've seen they seem to be in the bigger pine and the ones harder to get to.

Does this look like pine beetles?

Thanks, that's good information.

I must say this is a most helpful group, I'm glad I found it.

Another thing to consider is wind speed and direction while felling trees.
As I explained about felling with the trees natural lean off of a face of the timber stand.
You need a backup plan if you get a bad wind screwing up your felling. A 2nd face will be needed with a different angle on the timber stand to work with the wind.
One thing you quickly come to realize when felling trees, you can't fight the wind. Haha.
