Thanks to Craigs list I found a great deal on a trailer and a guy who had 75 oaks cut and wants folks to come and take 'em. Since he was only five miles away, I had to go out and get my first chain saw. I went with the Stihl 250, and I'm realizing I am going to need a little more oomph if I'm going to continue in the pursuit of downed oak - live and learn. Anyhoo, here's a pic of my first haul. Any estimates on what amount it is? I'm guessing about a 1/3-1/2 cord. The rounds are 18" - mostly.
