Chawathil First Nation
This is an example of forest fuel loading. This picture shows three logs suspended off the ground and hanging in mid-air. In this specific case, Chris George the chainsaw operator bucked the logs into chucks to a point where all the log fiber was scattered and laying flat on the ground. This picture was taken in December of 2014.
