    There are parts of our property that are only accessible by ATV and a small trailer. It's not like I'm gonna just throw that wood into the brush pile.

    I’ve hauled lots of wood that way to the pickup in pastures too dense to cut a pickup trail. I even used an old lawnmower for a while after my grama got a new one. Had a John boat trailer that you could stack 1/2 cord on till my brother decided he needed a skidoo trailer more :(

    Oak score today. Have about 6 more trailer loads out of this place to go. Thank goodness for the little articulating grapple machine on site to load 56606252054__80EB7C40-F3C7-4356-A308-4C84B88ECBB5.JPG 56607029962__48AA8143-92E6-4DE5-AF87-39EF2A35F809.JPG 56606252054__80EB7C40-F3C7-4356-A308-4C84B88ECBB5.JPG

    I love getting a bunch of oak. Burns hot and splits good. I burn almost all oak but I’m lucky to be in a spot where it grows all around. Nice score!

    I'm lucky to have a large tree service that doesn't fool with firewood - they hook me up with all the good wood. we sometime go to job sites and they will load with crane or grapple. if we can't get there for the job they bring all the good stuff back to the yard and we go over every sunday and get a few trailer loads. They charge to remove from job - we take it so they don't pay dump fees - its WIN WIN

    Took down 22 dead standing fir trees a couple weeks ago that a friend had on his property. These are pictures and a short video of the more notable trees. I had to climb this one and remove the limbs on the downhill side so it wouldn’t want to fall towards the barn as it was rotten at the base. IMG_1192.jpg 56488519341__29628969-4CA7-4234-B93A-4B122813CD98.jpg just a little on edge while in the back cut. After trimming off the rot from the co-dominant trunk I realized there wasn’t much holding this tree up.

    A couple weeks before the snow and yesterday after a few inches. I know... I know... not much of a truckload but I do all I can in a few hours. It’s great exercise for a messed up back!

    From here the trailer gets parked in the attached garage where it will be slowly offloaded into the woodburner in the house. You could say it's the end of the road for these former trees.
