    I had at least 4 good size dead standing trees and over the last week mother nature took care of three of them. I still have a very big white oak dead standing that I may attempt to fell but for now I have resisted. Last week mother nature took down a big maple and a sycamore. Christmas eve brought high winds again and brought down a big shagbark. It could not have dropped in a better place. It did not take any other trees with it when it went either..............pictures do not do it justice. It is a big one. bearded asil hen 047.jpg

    Like your MN is nice approach but she usually don't care when & where she drops them.
    If any are near something they might damage, I've learned to take them before MN does ;)

    Bucked up yet :)

    Seems like the only thing they get wrong with our weather are the winds (never did get them this last storm) nice score,

    Did the deed on this shagbark this morning. It didn't take long with a new chain. Also took a picture of some of the rounds of maple I got the othe day. Couldn't take much as there is a little snow on the ground.

    etiger, if cut in the winter like this one, two years. If your ahead of the game, three years. Minimum would be a year and a half if split in the spring or early summer.

    They're usually full of rather deep woodpecker holes here if left to MN to drop.
    I hope you get much more solid wood.
