It's just a couple hours south of me. I should probably round up a group of guys and go check it out sometime. It would probably be very educational just to see it.

Heh, this PDF lists Hull-Oakes (along with several others) as a severe threat to 'old growth' Oregon forests because they prefer large diameter long length logs that can only be found in old growth forests.

Well, their tools are enormous. Why waste them on puny trees?
