    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.
