    Just started cutting up 49 acres of pushed over apple trees courtesy of my employer. These trees are about 2 miles from my house. Fifty other people are also cutting trees, some people are cutting off all the limb wood and trunking the trees, leaving the limb wood. My gasifier loves limb wood, I don't have to split 4"-5" rounds. Gotta love it!! :)
    Cheers

    Excellent wood but tough to make good production...here that would call for the 16" saw. I would grab all of that I could.

    The twigs off of the limbs make great kindling. We trimmed our maples a couple of years ago and the twigs I salvaged kept us in kindling the whole winter. Now I have to scrounge around for some for next winter.

    49 acres? Another 300 year old farm about to become a Chinamart or a Garbage Depot?

    No.... It's going to be a spray field for fruit processing waste water(My closest Walmart is about 20 minutes away, too close for comfort actually...

    Great source for btu's. Great turn around that seems a little labor intense but some of that apple is tough to split even with a hydraulic splitter. Go for the straight trunks when you go for splitting stuff. I wish it were free and only two miles from me.
