Nice locust Brett. Those logs are the size(and bigger) we used to make hand split rails from. Looks like they would be good for use in your next shed build.Good evening guys.
Got a little less done today than I would have liked, but I got something done.

Managed to get all but a few1-2" roots out of the ground. I also got 3 sticks for lumber out of it, some cure to it, but it should make a stick or two of nice wood for me, especially with all the others I got from the tree in the front .
My littler helper, the older kids had a bit of schoolwork to finish up, we had fun!

One of us misses something sometimes. One of us will see a wire that the other didn't that complicates the job, or forgets to ask what's under the ground near the tree, and then one of us asks and you find out there's a weeping field or something in the line of fire, so now all the wood has to come down by rope. We each come up with a price and then compare, we chat for a moment, and then hit the customer with what we settle on. We're rarely off with each other by more than 10% or 15%, even though we approach the pricing in a different fashion.
We just priced this one on Friday. This is gonna be rock and roll. Hard to tell by the pic but it's a good 3'+ at the base and 90'+ high with a serious lean. And you just gotta know the hydro wires to the house are right under it. Gonna do it within the next three-weeks. Should be fun.
Well if you consider the exchange rate how close am I? 1500.00 here. They always look bigger up close and in person also.Morning,
You're close, a bit more. There are two others as well. A decent sized hemlock that will be a breeze - and will also serve as a roping pojnt for the big maple - and another maple, fair sized near some wires, but nothing serious. Everything chipped on site and cut into firewood. That tree in the pic is what the job is really all about.
Tomorrow is the fun day. A good sized dead ash that is going to be awesome! firewood. My climber was praying we would get the job and we did. he wants that wood.
Good morning Leeroy.

Good morning Ray.Freshly cut they need the stump painted with a liberal dose of chainsaw fuel mix.
