First year burning and we are having to buy wood, simply cause we just didn't calculate how much we would use. My parents bought almost 30 acres I can cut from, problem is, bf works all the time. I am currently in between jobs (woo, recession )and would love to go out there myself and cut some downed trees. I would just be cutting small maybe 3-5 " trees with a brand new Sthil gas powered chain saw. Good idea? Not a good idea? Is there any other tool I could use, can't use anything with electricity though...parents new house isn't build yet, and so now power. Just so you guys know, I'm a girly tomboy...I grew up in the garage with my dad, not literally but you know what I mean :coolsmile: I do lots of "guy" things, but my main concern here is safety. Ideas? Suggestions?
