Harvesting Trees

Unlike the grape harvest (which is also happening, benefitting from the extended summery weather), this is more of a one-in-thirty years affair. Across the valley the plantation of pinus radiata   is being harvested. That means waking up to distant hum of chainsaws and rattle of machinery. But Sunday is a day of rest.
