    My plan was dropping two that are topped off, the second one was suspect about five foot up so mother nature can take care of it,we have more in that area but the winds started to pick up.

    After the wind picked up I went looking for some downed Hemlock, found this one which was good wood, the second one was rotten so after cutting four rounds off I went riding.

    Pic 6980 & 81 is the rotten Hemlock, it looks like by next week I can get the splitter back in our hit some of the hills that have more downed wood.

    The hill that runs the length of the brook has some beech that I'll grab first, I think we have a big maple down up there but will confirm that on my first run up. Once I grab the best of downed wood I'll start looking for dead standing, we also need some walleye for the freezer so some trips down to the St.Lawrence River will be planned.

    The shed is still a go, just need the building permit first. I think we will go with two bays, not sure on the size yet but will have that in the next two weeks.

    I still have this cherry up in the bowl, this is the summer I get this down with the help of some cables and the Ford 250 Super Duty.

    Always impressive with the amount of wood you bring in.

    Can't see the whole thing there zap but it appears that wouldn't even have to be pulled down. I've cut many of those types with no problems.

    Lots of back pressure from the two trees it's on, just want to make one cut so it drops then pull it up and back so it comes out nice and easy. I've done about three, I just feel better doing it this way.

    We have some nice size trees on the side I can throw a tree trunk saver, D Shackle with a snatch block, should work nice with the Ford 250 pulling.

    Another reason is the last one I did it just kept dropping but never came out of he tree, I ended up pulling it out with the rhino, this one should come out, if it works out well you'll have pics, if not you'll still have pics.;lol
