During last nights high winds Mother Nature brought down one of the 3 very large ash that I have been eying up right behind the house and strategizing my approach. Fortunately this is the one I considered the most dangerous to drop due to all the dead limbs up top. All I need to do is drop the stump/bottom 20' or so now. And the really good news is she was very selective on her drop site and put it right where I wanted with minimal damage to other live trees I would like to preserve!! For perspective that base is easily pushing the 30" range - probably 36". You can see how close to the house it is so not much travel to the wood pile!! Can a moderator please fix my tilte to say "nature" I am not a wood hater!! arggg!!
