There's a logging operation going on on Rt. 25. Tree harvesters, skidders and dozers have been busy at work cutting and removing trees for a week now. It's a pretty big operation. These are the hoses running off one of the large harvesters. The trees look to be mostly spruce, so this would indicate to me that they are removing the trees to clear the way for some excavation work and not for any hardwood harvesting. As I said, the area has frontage on 25, so housing or commercial usage seems to be the best bet. The housing market seems to be turning around, the Markets continue to push upwards. These continued upturns really must have the economic doom-sayers in a real funk. We're not out of the woods yet, after all I've never ever implied I was any kind of economist, but I am an optimist. Like one of these gargantuan cruise ships, it takes a while to turn it around.
