    Good for posting, I was lucky enough to get a guy on here to let me cut with him this past year on a site like this. A word of caution, MAKE SURE THEY CAN CUT. Not just can cut, but cut like you like to cut. We had a guy come in that could cut and put three or four trees in other trees and left them. Never came back. Just a suggestion. Plenty more guys could cut any area if they just talked and understood what each wanted.
    Hope this may help, good luck wish it was near me.

    Appreciate the offer. Tempting, but it's 72 miles from Libertyville (my location). If I had a larger truck and trailer, maybe... I can only handle about 1 cord with my current set up.

    Again too far for me and can only haul less than a cord. sounds fun though. If I had a bigger truck and huge trailer and somewhere to stack it, Id be there.

    Wow, hard to believe nobody has taken you up on this. If you can't find any takers here, try over on AS. I'm sure you could find some help on CL, but who knows what caliber of person would show up...

    I don't need the help but it never hurts. The quality of help is also a reason why I posted here as most either are experienced or are willing to learn. If no takern more wood for me :)

    There are 4 hard maples 24-30 in trunk and about 40-50 ft tall how many cord do you think are in those??
