    Our oaks are either huge or small/young. The charcoal plant (long gone) only wanted 10" logs for a while. So a lot of what's left are giant yard tree sized or a little too small cut now. Mostly take the dead and windfalls.

    Its a shame that those little gypsy moths could kill a tree that has been growing for of a 100 years. I have been trying to take the ones that pose the most danger to the house and barn but about 80 more on my property.

    Wow, at least you have plenty of firewood, but yes its sad seeing those older trees go.
    Today I cleaned up 3 fork loads of brush in front of the house, and dropped a bent over elm that a large cherry damaged, as well as a few little trees that were also damaged by the same cherry. The good thing is the cherry didn't damage any of the Norway spruce I planted up there. Another good thing is I did want this tree down as it was leaning pretty good and I planted about twice as many spruce as I wanted knowing that some of the larger trees along the rd would most likely fall and damage them. I just noticed that two of those trees may not make it as it looks like a deer was munching on them, its one thing or another killing them it seems.
    Well I did a good bit more after I typed the above, I forgot to send it I guess lol.
    3 good sized buckets and 1 big one. Things are finally starting to look like we didn't have a tornado hit :clap:.
    Big bucket, locust :sweet:!

    I do feel very fortunate, lots of good wood on my place. I liked it better when I picked the ones to come down. First the ash now a bunch of oaks. Whats next:(

    Plans most the day, but maybe in the evening we'd be available.
    I'll have to check for sure, but it's a big weekend.

    That's gonna get expensive since my suburban only gets 12mpg and I'd need to make two trips :laugh:.
    I only have a few sticks of pine, that's for the bonfire and making cookies :sweet:.

    I’ve got most of this cut up but the pic is from early spring lots of ash and some walnut. Walnut I’ll use for milling projects.
