    If only I could. I'll take my time on this stuff, the downed sugar maple will be first on the list.

    If I can get another 5 cord by the time the white stuff hits the ground I'll be a happy camper. My wife reminded me tonight about the Maple branch that came down across her walking trail, like Sav said it's never ending.

    S.O., there are some in that area that could be milled,most are not big enough to mill. I think we have more widowmakers around the house than we do in that area.

    B.D.,yes they do. We hate losing the Maples, we had a guy coming to see if there were enough Maples to tap in that area, he was thinkng of buying the sap, I talked to him one hour before the storm hit while we voted on the school budget.

    Zap, looks like most of that is off the ground and easy to handle. I hate it too when a storm takes a healthy one and hate it even worse when I see roots and all out of the ground.

    I hate losing them too, but we'll get some firewood and some young trees will get more sun so they can get bigger. It rain real hard all last night then again this morning, the Oaks I planted should have enough water for a couple of weeks.

    Probably more like a month or two. Don't water new trees too much. Make that root go down for moisture and it will be stronger.
