My goal is to cut them into pieces and burn the hell out of them. 2 of the trees were siamese at the bottom like they grew from one root. Anybody know what type of trees these are? I only have a Sirocco so this will be years and years of wood so I may give some away if I can't store it all, plus get help doing it.

    Thats what I think too, how bad did it damage your shed? You can take out your frustrations with a maul, beat the crap out of it, you'll have it split in no time.

    Shed is toast. 12x10, made it 2 inches taller than myself so I would never hit my head, but not too tall to stand out too much. Tongue and Groove pine sides. Can't get in yet to see what is damaged inside just yet. Pix of shed attached, one you can even see how the rear of the shed broke due to shifting framework. I could not identify the ash, but I believe the tree with the rot in the middle was a hickory as I had lots of hickory nuts in that area. The ash fell over during hurricane Sandy, and was leaning on the hickory. Kept trying to get tree guys to come, ya,ya, I'll be over tomorrow, ya, ya. Then a huge crash. No way for me to cut the tree before it fell.
