    A nearby friend experienced a small microburst on Sunday that took this tree down and about 8 rows of corn. No wind at all at my place.

    The wind did that tree a big favor......that was a ticking time bomb. Luckily it wasn't on a house or people.....

    It does amaze me when people always blame the weather for taking down a tree that was already rotten. For sure that thing was ready to go and the weather was just the last straw.

    Let us know how many nests there were up in that old tree. It looks like a condo complex.

    I cut the top off the trunk as level as possible put a small roof on it . Next a toilet and a few rolls. Youd be the only guy with a camo potty ! ;)

    I would say that thing was hollow for the last 30 years and it would stand another 10 years if it didn't get all that help from MN

    I got my own whites to contend with Woody. Put up another 90 feet over the last few weeks. Got two more piles to clean up and then a small break. This weekend I will do the Tiger thang in the afternoon though. :)

    White takes priority here, as well. I'm not working on it right now, but it is secure. >>
    90'?? Good work! :cool: I'm just trying to clear the deck in my processing area to get ready for the next go-'round. I have stuff at a couple of peoples' houses that I need to pick up. Yep, various Red types. Then cut dead Ash for my in-laws for next year. Then finally start going after the good stuff to stack here; Whites, Shag, Dogwood, Persimmon, BL and HL. We live in firewood heaven, don't we? :)

    Forgot to record the final round last week....<> Scott's finally hitting his stride. You know you're rollin' when they start falling into your lap, too. ::-)

    Good work, Tim! So you're gonna give up playing with your wood to go out and play with your "wood" (putter and irons, too)?

    Sounds like you earned the break! ;)

    Oh, OK......I thought you were "hittin' the links" ;) Either way, you've earned the break brother...maybe drive a few cold ones while you watch the tube.....the autumn brews are coming out on the market.
