Watching tree shakers harvest almonds in Northern California is awesome

The shaking of almond trees can only mean one thing - almond harvest is underway in the Sacramento Valley. Typically from mid-August through October, mechanical tree "shakers" harvest almonds by vigorously shaking them. This vidoe footage is from Chamisal Creek Ranch in Colusa County. Almonds are the No. 2 agricultural crop in California, valued around $6 billion.
