I have access to 60 red pine and blue spruce logs. (12 to 16 at the base. 30 to 40 feet long) They are standing and I am to cut them down. They are all alive. I was wondering if there is a good time of the year to cut them down and peel the bark off easily. Or, do I have to do it with a draw knife. Is there any other hand tool that would work better? I do not have access to a machine driven log peeler. What do ya think?

They will peel easiest in the summer.
