Hi there guys
In stead of me putting bits and bobs of my wood,tree cutting,felling,firewood stuff all over the place im starting this post and intend to update it when ever i find something for you.
I have got some work on a property not far from home and i am going to be there for awhile with a heap of trees to fell,started out there on Saturday and the farmer tested me out straight up.A very large ugly Cypress tree,there was an excavator there to help out so it wasn't to dad and all went well.
Felled afew dead or dying trees around the place before lunch,a mate is doing a lot of fencing there so removing the trees before replacing or putting in new fences ones as i go.
After lunch go started on a row of Matts (MCW)s aerate trees,i think they are the same Casuarinas and there is a heap of them,they are a bit of a prick with all the low growing branches that need to be trimmed so you can get to the trunk.The farmer was following me with a 8 ton excavator putting them into piles to burn latter on.I work out on average can fell one in about 6 to 7 mins each with a fuel stop in the hr.Used the ported 441CR MTronic with a 28'' ES Light bar,what a pleasure this combo is for this type of work.
Pic of the ugly Cypress tree before and after.

good work... mean saw too!

.... is he going to farm that area?.... some of those trees look pretty old and messy... you are lucky you dont have to chip all that!
tell the farmer to make sure that wood is real dry before he burns it. i dont know about over there, but here sap can clog up the chimney (especially italian cypress). you can advise him to burn a hardwood after he burns the evergreen-- this will reduce the build up. stay safe and enjoy your work day!

Where that Cypress was he is going to build big yard and have a sheep feed lot along that area.
We dont burn Cypress,Pine and that type wood over here we have a lot better wood to heat the house.

Ya a 36'' ES Light just started using it.
I dont think so with the flush cut there is a 45 ton excervator coming with a ripper on it will take care of that and mant other stumps.:msp_smile:
I'd love to a video of the excavator attacking that stump :msp_wink:
