With the help of a donated truck and driver from Phil Genovar and Dixie Custom Auto, we moved 3 large heavy pieces of live oak from tyhe woodlot to the sawmill outside of Green Cove Springs.
Using the heavy cable system of the truck, we hauled massive live oak logs up onto the bed of the truck
Paul, the driver, a long-time St Augustine resident and 20 year employee of Dixie Custom Auto, capably with chains and cable dragged the timbers up onto the bed of the truck.
This substantial load of live oak was then driven to the sawmill where it was unloaded using the heavy bob-cat run by the mill operator
After the logs were on the ground at the sawmill Capt John and the mill operator carefully considered the best ways to cut them into useable sized slabs.
