Got a big maple at a friend's going, tree guys still need to do trunk. 3 loads so far, maybe 3 more in trunk and remaining pieces. Used the sharp hatchet method to load all of these pieces quickly, impressed the tree guys - "we gotta try that!" Taught the one 10 years ago, so , so might have more wood coming down the road. No brush, nocutting, no cleanup, small sections, and all the lemonade I could drink. I could get used to this! Her Neighbor says he planted it 40 years ago, and it's a sugar maple.I don't think so - Whaddaya'll think? Gonna process and stack the loads in my nieghbor's yard, may pull some for next year if it dries fast. Some old stuff under where I dumped this load.
