Taken in Alton, on Thursday, November 5, 2015
on Prospect Mountain Road.
The ‘edge’ of this picture in April 2013.
For the last two weeks, all day, starting at 7am, it has been a constant barrage of chainsaws screaming, chippers chipping and heavy trucks trundling by with wood chippings and logs.
These pictures don’t do justice PLUS I didn’t trespass into where the major deforestation is taking place. This is a huge, 45 acre+, lot.
I am very pragmatic when it comes to trees being cut down. I do appreciate that it is a renewable source and that all of New Hampshire is said to be in its 3rd, yes 3rd, tree growth cycle.
I do not begrudge anybody from trying to make money. Making money is a noble endeavor. When I owned land I had thought about selling logging rights for money. So, I am NOT complaining.
Just sharing something than many, not living in central NH, may not realize.
I do see the irony. Oil prices are way, way down.
Firewood prices are UP and it has to do with Fracking.
What a world.
