    I don't think anyone would want to see me cutting down a tree in a sundress. ;) :)

    In my case, that would be more offensive than the noise.
    LOL
    I'm not sure, but I think the sun dress is optional.

    Not bad, but can it split and stack the wood, too?

    No, but it will light it on fire.

    I'd feel a little guilty unless I was able to recycle all of the slugs.

    We did something like this to a tree on my buddies property down in Burgaw NC about 12 - 13 yrs ago. Noting that high-tech though. I think we used a 30/6, .38 and I shotgun. Eh, we had nothing else to do that day.

    If I owned a minigun and had a few tons of ammo to spare, I can't say I wouldn't do that.

    Come over to Maine . . . we've got long winters and a bunch of greenies so we spend a good portion of our winter dressing our trees for the aesthetics . . . and in an attempt to keep them warm . . . although putting sundresses on them and bikinis doesn't do much for the warmth factor . . . but man, oh man . . . those trees start to look pretty hot by the time March rolls around. :) ;)

    This has got to be the only forum on the internet where guys lust over trees.

    WOW!

    Wow, I'd love to do that in a sundress ! And I'd even offer to go try it on those wood stealers on that member - jdemaris 's property ! He needs a gun like that to keep loggers off his acreage !
