    Why waiting for Spring?
    The wood is driest now & no sap running.
    Also no bugs ;)

    no we have to take them out our selves the lines are on our property but the power company sead that they will take down the lines so the trees don't fall in a storm and take out power so it works out good that will be my 2015 2016 wood supply==c

    After this year & you made it thru, probably a good idea to do some tree management.
    Next storm could roll in a few miles more north.
    Better to make it fire wood now, than down power lines & then fire wood later ;)
