Tree Down

A Tawa tree came down in the Awakino Gorge this morning.
This one, rotten at the base, fell at a reasonable hour.

A truck hit the head of the tree and suffered a bit of damage, but in doing so smashed enough room for traffic to get through.

We pushed it off the road, cut it into managable bits and hauled it away.

Tawa is great firewood, splits easily, and is one of the only NZ native timbers that will burn green.
Good that ...
