Forestry harvesting and extraction. Forestry Commission, Cannock, UK. Modified "Thetford Tongues" for skid extraction of Pine (Pinus nigra maritima). Mounted on Ford County tractor. This was a much favoured combination for "hotlog" extraction at Cannock in the 1980's-90's. County and Ford County tractors were for years the stalwart workhorses in UK farm and forestry and still have a place, as well as a small but dedicated fan base.
