    Poplar trunk about 70 feet high, 67" diameter with bark, 62" without. Rigged it to pull as it was in a tight area, "backyard" in town. Saws used were a Stihl 880 Magnum with a 50" Cannon Superbar for the notch and main backcut..Clean up the rest of the back cut with a 461 with 28" Rollomatic, Wedged and pulled. For around here its a monster. Did it for a friend and hated to see this trunk rot where it was. I plan to take the logs home to feed my pet saws!!

    Wow. Not too many people have something like that in their yard. Count the rings if you can, would like to know it's age. Save a big cookie for a coffee table.

    Cottonwood is a poplar tree. As is aspen.
