    Looks like I'll get some wood from this beech blow down, not sure how far up it's hollow but my guess is the wood gets better after the moss ends.

    That should still be some great firewood.

    Never know!

    2 years ago I felled the remainder of a hollowed white oak. Once it was on the ground I started bucking at the top and working towards the base. I stopped for a minute because the tree had split so bad and decided to move it a little with a spud bar. The tree "opened up" along the cracks while I was rolling it and a mass of fur started moving. I let out a girly scream and ran backwards thinking the only thing that size could be a bear! My brother hearing my screams turned around to run and tripped over my chainsaw case. Turned out to be 4 racoons balled together......they waddled off one by one looking pretty disoriented. Had to change my shorts after that one LOL.
