November 24, 2008. Ashe County, NC.. On one of the lots that is owned by Furches Evergreens, baled trees sit waiting for the tractor that will haul them down the hillside to the loading zone. The steep terrain that the Frazier firs love makes for difficult harvesting, with most of the cutting and hauling being down by hand until a rough road can be found.
