    This is where I have been gathering wood for the last few days. This old elm was about 18 to 20 inches back in 1950 when my friend's parents moved there.

    Two years ago he paid a guy to cut it down. The guy cut off the branches and never came back. There have been 2 or 3 other guys come over and then give up on it.

    I have cut several loads off those huge branches and 90% of the wood is still good. There are about 5 more good pieces left to cut/haul out of there.

    Looks like a mid 80's nissan? I used to have a 1996 nissan pickup. It was great, wish I wouldn't have totaled it. What liter motor is in that truck?

    I bought the pickup new in 1993. It still has no dents on it and 82,000 miles. This one has a 2000 cc engine. I drove my previous Datsun pickup for 21 years. I bought it new in 1972.

    Yep this is elm and it has some twists but my splitter will handle it.

    Yes she saw this one in another of my posts and then began another thread herself about the hitch mounted crane.
