    This pine was taken down for two reasons, 1. for more sun on the eastside of the house and 2. it's dying.

    The pine is down with some of it bucked up, more shoulder season wood. Good ole softwood makes me think I can almost sharpen. All the wood chips in the old wheelbarrow is from making the back cut when felling the pine.

    We will mill up some boards from the biggest 12 foot section.

    I took the 028 Wood Boss to the pine we felled a few days ago, I split some and the last two pics we'll get some boards out of. The branches will be brought to the wood dump since that is a main trail which we want opened up quick.

    I decided since the radar said it wouldn't rain until 6:45 I would get two loads of chips on a low spot on a trail, when I started off with the first load mother nature let the rains come so I did the two loads and I'll finish it tomorrow.

    Picture 9222 is the first load, 9223 is the first load heading back on the trail,9225 is the low spot I'm filling in and the rest are the second load.

    Counting the loads I moved last night (2) and 6 today, the first load is almost gone with a smaller load behind the first.

    The camera got wet yesterday when I did the two loads so todays pics are cloudy but here are a few from the work done today.

    Pic 9232 was the first load today. I'll have to run over these chips with the rhino to pack them down because the tractor will just push the chips to the side when you go over it.

    I didn't get any firewood work done today, I have something going on in my inner right ear but tomorrow I'll start splitting the pine in this picture. This pine we'll be for the shoulder season of 2020.

    I stacked some pine and then grabbed the splitter so I could get going on the pile of pine rounds, pic 9251 is what I split after stacking.

    I split more pine today, this should give me two face cord or 0.62 of a cord.

    Pic 9253 is the start of my splitting after I split about 10 rounds, pics 9255 & 56 is all the pine I split the last couple of days.

    My plan was to finish this stack today but the shopping day was moved up a day so I only did three loads of pine, this pine is from the tree we felled for more sun.

    I moved around 11 or 12 loads of chips to what was a low area in the trail, this should make this part of the trail much better when it's wet or just when going for a ride.

    We hit 80 again today but the clouds moved in so it wasn't that bad. I took two loads (one pictured) to the wood dump in the utility trailer

    After I came back from the wood dump, I put five gallons of diesel in the 4540 and took three loads of chips to the trail I've been working on. I also moved a nice size pine log out of the area we felled it, hopefully by the end of the day Friday, that area will be ready for me to stack the ash.

    Picture 9303 are some of the pine branches for the first load and 9304 is the trailer loaded up before we strapped everything down for the run to the wood dump.

    Thanks @Cowboy254 , hopefully I'll have more. Tomorrow I should be getting an area ready for stacking some ash I felled,bucked and split earlier this year.

    How's the weather your way? Since spring it's been cold and wet with the warmer weather finally getting here earlier this week, it rained pretty hard here but nothing like central New York receive, lots of flooded houses in that area.

    Cold here now (for us). Frosts overnight and highs into the low 40s°F. However many houses >20 years old (like ours) were not well insulated so we burn more wood than we really should. The upcoming renovation, if it ever happens, will help with that aspect.

    My first house that I bought had windows so bad when the wind blew, my comb over got messed up. :D

    I hauled out 5 plus loads of ash today and I stacked it. Pic 9305 is my run in, 9306 is the first load, 9311 is the last partial load, 9312 is the pile of ash that I hope to have up tomorrow and 9313 is two face cord of ash.

    I stacked another two face cord of ash today, all the splits from the gully are gone so my runs will be shorter. Pic 9317 & 18 are some of the loads that came out of the gully, 9319 is when I started hauling from a different pile, pic 9322 is everything stacked from today, 9323 is the biggest pile of ash splits left that I hope to get four face cord from and 9324 is the smaller pile left that I'm guessing we'll get close to two face cord.

    I still have some ash logs that will need c/s/s.

    Today I did get the two face cord up for a total of six so far. Pic 9326 is the first load,9227 the second,9228 the third,9229 the fourth and 9230 is the fifth. The pile in pic 9323 is the biggest pile left, I'm hoping for four face cord but if it's less then that's will be ok.

    I'll take a break from stacking tomorrow and then start up again when the weather allows.

    I took the day off from any firewood work and we took the boat out, the top water temps were only 70 but it felt great. The water is at spring levels.

    In pic 9341 there is usually 15 to 20 feet of sand showing at this time of year.

    IMG_9402.JPG I took the day off from any firewood work and we went out on the water again, it was a great day. We saw a mink down by the water.

    Today I started cleaning up a new area where we'll pile a bunch of the pine we have and also make some trails for the rhino,tractor and for walking.

    Picture 9466 is from the only entrance looking at the dead pine, there was plenty of rotten pine down so that went on the second run to the wood dump and boy, did mother nature dump on me.

    Hopefully before the end of this coming week, I have a whole bunch of pine in there.
