I recently bought a home where the previous homeowner had someone cut down two large trees but ran out of cash and couldn't pay to have the wood hauled away. I am trying to find the best way to cut the wood into pieces of firewood. There are about 20 large pieces of wood (about 16 inches thick and the biggest is about 36 inch diameter) as well as smaller logs from the branches laying in a large pile in the backyard. One of the former trees has probably been dead for a while since some of the large pieces have a 6 inch hole in the center. The trees were cut about a year ago and have sat in the elements since then. I don't currently own a chainsaw or a log-splitter and am searching for rental equipment that will do the job. Are there certain things i should look for in the equipment? Hints to make it easier on me? This will be my first time trying to do a job this big, only campground firewood experience.
