This was a typical scene in the forests near our camp. Trees are felled and cut into planks in situ, with a camp set up nearby for the woodcutters to sleep. The planks are then carried down the mountains where they are sold for $5 each in the weekly market. All of the biggest trees had already been removed; now they are cutting smaller trees.
