    I got the chance to take a few trees at a relatives place. Big dead oak that was uprooted along with a walnut. Both trees were partially down and hung up on other trees. The oak was easy, cut it at the base and it fell over. The walnut I was concerned about so I strapped it to the duramax and pulled her down. Enjoy the pics.

    Here's a pic of the huge red oak on the property. Can't imagine how old this tree is.

    Top picture is ash rather than oak. You have some nice firewood there.

    Thanks for the clarification. Was torn between ash and oak.
