Clearing the land for farming is a great way to lay in a supply of firewood for the winter. Mr. Tweedy probably would have liked to trade his axe for a chainsaw to make the job a little easier, but in 1915 that wasn’t an option. At least the tree was on his own property in Prairie Valley so he didn’t have far to haul it; plus he had support and encouragement (if not help) from the family dogs.
