Neat to see ring debarker. Here they normally have rosser heads or giant drum debarkers for pulp wood. Not used to seeing a wet yard. Pond must take less maintenance than that loader.
It's nice to see old school methods. Where I live, there was a large lumber and plywood plant. Many years ago, they used millponds, and you can see them on old maps. As production increased, they started stacking raw logs in very long and high rows. They added huge sprinkler system to keep logs wet. It also helped prevent fires. During processing, bark was removed and huge piles of bark sat around until a demand for landscaping bark started. A few big fires in bark piles happened over the years. Most were from spontaneous combustion.
