    That's a lot of wood, but seems shy of 8 cord. Maybe the pics don't do it justice.

    thats the first tree, the other one which i havent started on is accross the street. i will have 3 loads off this particular tree after tonite and it likely is 5-6 cords just by itself. the log shown is 42" x 14' long and should be at least 1-1/2 cords by itself.

    Didn't know there was another tree. 8 cord is in the realm of possibilities then.

    Yeah, that's a shame. As far as I know, the ash borer has gotten hung up in eastern New York and supposedly hasn't encroached into New England yet. I hope they figure out a way to stop that evil little pest.

    I actually live right on the edge of an area where the asian longhorned beetle is doing some serious damage to maples. They're nasty, too, though I think they've figured out an effective way to control them because they're lazy critters and don't seem to wander too far from the trees they spring from.

    I remember when they cut down all the trees from the LH beetle, it looked like a tornado went through the city. I thought I read in the paper a month or so ago where they found some more infested trees at Holy Cross.

    Yet is the key word there. I don't think anything is stopping that train.
