    Hey bubba the fires in the back yard and didn't start until today, that was yesterday in the front ;).
    Working my tail off out here today, I've got all but two leaders taken care of, they get tangled in with the other trees pretty bad when you don't get to choose where you want to drop them, it's hard work dealing with all the tension/pressure created. I managed to get the pole saw pinched twice and the 261 twice. The good thing is I got them out easily as they weren't bad.
    Lots of pressure getting this one off the stump, then more getting it out of the trees its jammed into in the picture :surprised3:.
    Its been a long day.

    Looks like some rookie faller dropped it in the worse spot possible :laugh:. Can you see the split at the "y" to the left of the trees its wedged between, everytime I got it past a couple trees that it was wedged between it jammed between two more :nofunny:. When I made that cut in the picture above I had the kerf opened a half inch so I wouldn't get pinched, when I cut the top she slammed closed something fierce and just stayed right there. I made five more cuts on the tension side and then knocked it off with a sledge hammer, she moved about a ft when it let loose, glad I knew not to stand there :eek:. The hardest thing is doing all that cutting overhead to shoulder height. I had to do that to get past the fractures. When I layed down the stump I just cut straight through, I got pinched 3 times but was able to get out before she got me, all on the tension side with all the weight it had, storm damage ain't easy.
    I did get all the leaners(at least this group) down and all the brush burned up from these trees and the yard.

    be careful there chipper. a bouncing betty is better than some alternatives! on Bizarre ER other nite, had 3 in with chain saw accidents. I won't watch that show. too graphic, and not a reality show type version.

    Okay, touching up one side of the skip chisel chain went well. The other side touched the screw and replacing the corner with a file wasn't going well. Found a full comp chisel which finished the slice. Comp didn't have room for the fuzzy dust so going was slow. 20190914_181339.jpg about light enough to roll over the side without damage to the borrowed trailer! Now I will offer a choice of other slabs that are more suitable for outside use. They have used a slice of the Maple, awhile back, for a street sign. Brett's brother wants one and I indicated they'd get one. Sycamore isn't suitable for outside stuff. But ash, black walnut,, and Maple seems to be and in my stock.
