Don't know if you will see a post on a older video, hope so kinda as its always your final decision on what where when and was.... I was thinking of a picture of the tree, then a finished product like walnut siding inside parts of your building... we don't have walnut here in alaska and so its a treat to see, can agree with the mess as its right up there with the long needle pine. I suppose that your all burnt out on walnut but it sure is pretty lumber/siding

Mike, as a general contractor out here in Utah,I'm curious why not go to the low side which you say would need2 1/2 feet of fill.why not go to1 foot elevation dig flat to high side increase the height of foundation. I'm only recommending this as i don't know all the parameters and elevation changes. As long as you can maintain drainage away from the building this seems to be the easiest way to accomplish your building as well as the beautiful Melissa could keep her walnut tree. Keep up the great videos and tell Hunter hi from the great state of Utah

The old timers in Vt told me once why they dig a big hole before their giant 20-30ft culverts, is to stop the sediment from going into them. On the downside of them, they did the same, but with giant boulders about 50-75ft from the end. That's why they're so many awesome swimming holes, at least from where I am. Great fishing and great swimming !!

Just bite the bullet and take the walnut down, it would end up denting the roof anyway from the dropping fruit. Then Mike I dont know if you have thought of this but to get the compaction you normally want and need for a build pad you may have to put some water on that dirt to compact it more

Not for the reason of being negative, but I followed you for 2 years with Rural King Tractors. I was as impressed at the reviews, as I have been at using one. The reason I am using a RK 35 is directly because of your videos. I watched each one to see what these tractors could do. When your contract with them was up, I was sure you would pick Kioti, Mahindra, or one of the other less known tractors. When I saw Kabota, I stopped watching your videos, because Kabota is a tested, top of the line tractor. The reason I watched was that you done an excellent job of demonstrating what the RK's would do.....I know what a Kabota will do. I do not expect an answer, just wanted to voice my opinion from here in rural Ohio.

Yeah the post will have hard concrete around them, it sucks water out of the ground and when it rains it gets wet and soaked down in there, it’s not the highest grade concrete so water goes through it anyway and eventually it will be completely wet. I buried a bag of quickCrete in my backyard and it turned into a solid block even with the bag on it. Same thing happens if you leave it outside, those bags will soak up moisture from the air or if they get rained on and eventually turn into a giant rock

Maybe next time when you stack the lumber you put in 4x4 blocks every couple of feet high and if you need to move it again or get at certain boards near the bottom of the pile all you need to do is use the lumber forks on the tractor to move the lifts of lumber. Keep the lumber pile no more than 4 feet wide.

Nice Walnut tree= Good milled lumber .... Walnut reseeds itself easily, and the squirrels help, they only find half of the nuts they bury ... I watch them bury walnut out my kitchen window all late summer and fall ... then come over and eat all my sunflower seeds in the bird feeder ... I collect the walnuts in fall across the street and put them out in the winter near the feeder for them ... for every tree I take down I try to plant 2 to replace them, or at least help/protect saplings that will grow well in that location ...

"Mobile Chicken Coup". I think those things are the next best thing to the Chicken Egg. As a dirt man I was figuring you were gonna use hay bales in front of the pond for sediment trap. I can't tell you how many times I heard as a young apprentice carpenter "HOLD THE STICK LEVEL! HOLD THE STICK STICK STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN" Sheesh... I think us West Coasters would call that dirt "Loam"..... "Hunter YOU BIG STUD! How you doing Leather Foot"

Mike, Im using your quote.Im no expert but if you could plant Grass or some type of ground cover it may prevent sediment from going in the pond. The ponds i have seen in my area have grass all around them and they have had no problems.Several of these ponds were surrounded by steep hills.

Got your point, makes sense. On the other hand, knowing that the tree is mature, it COULD be rotten in the trunk, OR NOT. ...Cutting it down?lumber lives on....

I liked how you explained how the sediment encroaches into the pond over time. Sincere question here(not criticism) why not use the blade on the Kx080 to do all the top soil scraping? It looks like it might be faster. I'm guessing it would require a couple passes, but still quicker? Thanks, Mike
