The heavy equipment arrives to remove the tree stumps, and get the logs out of the way.

Here is the big tree stump just after it was dug up by the backhoe.

Some construction work has also started on the tree house whose subfloor is barely visible above the ladder.
This view is deceptive, since the bottom half of the tree is obscured.
The top of the ladder is 38 feet off the ground.
The beginnings of the rope bridge to another tree is also obscured by trees in the foreground.
More on this later.
