    Since I'm not real good at Maple I.D. this one is on the members. I needed some help from the rhino then it finally came down, cut off about 45 inches but it just came straight down then stuck in the ground so I measured another 45 inches then hooked up the tow straps to the tree.

    Started my cut on the back side (1/3 of the way through) then from the bottom, when I finished the bottom cut I jumped in the rhino then with one yank and two more cuts down she came, attached are some pictures.

    Red(soft) Maple! Yor woodlot looks like it will be mostly soft maples in that low ground mixed with the hemlocks and birches.

    Rottiman, I saw some totals from the Florida area 11 plus inches in one area.

    nrford, don't forget the cherry & ironwood. In the area I grabbed the beech from, that ridge has hard maple then up top has more hard maple ( they use to sugar it a long time ago.)
