Winter in the forest - snow on ground and all around; 2 workers operate a double saw between them; felling a tree; which falls away from camera. They do the same with a 2nd tree; it falls to right; in a big cloud of snow. Shot of 3 men hacking the branches off the trunk. Man using a forked stick to roll the trunk through snow and onto a track of 2 logs / team of horses pull sled in BG. He rolls this log across the other 2 perpendicular ones; till it drops off and lands below on a pile of many logs on a sort of platform which is actually a big sled. Next we see team of horses approaching; pulling the sled of logs on a road through the forest. Back view of same; going past 2 men by a little shed.
