    I didn't get a before picture but we had three smaller pines that I cleared out of this area so we can push snow off the driveway into this area.

    Some of the tall thin trees will come down along with the topped off Cherry which will give me more room for snow storage. I also limbed up some of the older pines (branches were dead) and I removed the stumps later today. I still have three or four days worth of work in there to clean up the dead stuff and the rest of the wood coming down.

    After working on more clearing in a newer plow zone for snow, I loaded up the utility trailer with a bunch of branches that will go to the town wood dump.

    After the above was done, I brought five bucket loads of wood with the 4540 over to the fireplace to burn after the next rain.

    Picture 9556 is the new plow zone I've been clearing, picture 9557 has a tall thin popple that will come down, 9559 is another load of branches for the wood dump, 9560 is the Cherry that was topped off and 9561 was a rotten pine that came down.

    The logs on the ground were from the felling of the 9 ash trees this spring, the stuff I bucked up this afternoon gave us another 79 - 82 rounds and that doesn't include the rounds in picture 9589.

    I should be splitting and stacking this before Monday.

    Since it was nice and cool (42) this morning, I decided to clean the area up that a bunch branches and wood got pushed last year when the garage went up. I did get rid of three trailer loads of branches and dead pine today. Pic 9608 is a before pic.

    I have some splitting (pine rounds) that I'll do and the chips will be used to level off some stacks where the fall ash will go.

    I saw a Woolly Bear on the way in, another easy winter.

    I moved a bunch of old pine splits over to the fireplace with the 4540, hopefully we get rain tonight so I can burn.

    After I did the above, I marked 15 Ash trees for felling once the leaves get off the trees, not all the Ash are pictured.

    After I marked the Ash trees I decided to get some rounds of Ash from the spring felling along with some smaller Maple rounds.

    I'm just waiting on the rest of the leaves to hit the ground so I can fell more ash before EAB gets them.

    I sent a couple tri-axles down the road last year with ash from my bush

    I used the 4540 with the forks and I took two trailer loads of pine branches and downed pine to the wood dump. The area in front of the 4540 down to the dirt is opened up for a tractor or UTV trail.

    This area will be used for snow storage so our driveway doesn't get narrow down on that end if we have a a lot of snow.

    I did get some good rounds from this tree that mother nature felled so tomorrow I'll buck this last piece up, hopefully there's some good wood in it but if it's all rotten, it will go to the wood dump.

    We decided not to put anymore money in the 310 since it's still having problems so my Christmas present came early, a new Stihl 311. Once I came home with it and read some of the manual, I went outside and cut up the maple in the picture.

    Picture 9700 is the maple and 9701 is after I bucked it up, 9702 is another area I want cleaned up before winter and the last two are a topped off maple that I'll get.

    Why to you take the junk wood to the wood dump? Aren't you allowed to burn it where it is - or do you prefer not to?

    Nice pics as always.

    Because part of our town is in the Adirondack Park, they require you to get a permit to burn brush but don't enforce it.....unless you burn down a chit load of land. We have an outdoor fireplace that I burn dead pine in after it's split and when it's wet out.

    We have a bunch of pine on the property so we have pine needles covering the forest floor, I would hate to have the needles catch fire.

    Yes, I can see how that would be a problem. I lit up a brush pile on a farm once and though the weather was cool and it was out of the declared fire danger season, the grass was dry and the fire started to creep away. As it was I had to scramble to contain it armed only with my rake. If there had been any wind it could have been embarrassing.

    Last winter when we received around 20 inches of snow overnight, this greeted us when we came through with the sleds. It's a Basswood mother nature put on the ground so I cleared it today.

    After I finished the Basswood, I cleared a trail to this downed Cherry, the trail had plenty of deep dips on one side so it needs some work. I still have some rounds back in there, the trail in a certain areas was tippy so I didn't load up the trailer on the side that had the bigger dips in it, I'll get the rest this coming week. I'm not sure what happened to the picture of the Cherry before I bucked it up but it's not on the card.

    Picture 9719 is the trail I cleared of dead rotting wood,9688 is the damaged Cherry,9720 is the Cherry bucked up,9721 is heading out, 9723 & 24 are the Tamaracks in the swamp and the last picture is the brook that runs through our property.

    The Tamaracks are turning.

    I took six loads of leaves and put them in a low area off the driveway and then put four bucket loads of chips on top, hopefully I finish it off with some loads of sand or dirt.
