    About a year ago we had Hurricane Sandy. It took a bunch of trees down.
    I showed some pictures in this thread.

    Thought it would be interesting to post a few shots of what the area looks like now...one year later

    From March -- things were very much a work in process...

    I'm sure everyone will notice the tarps laying around. I use them to top cover the stacks I will need this season. Not much rain in the forecast, so I removed them for a few weeks...not too obsessive though...

    Still a lot of work to do but things are getting better.

    I'm still finding people on craigslist who are just getting around to cleaning up and putting out wood that came down during Sandy.

    Some nice stacking there and good for you getting the wood ready. Is that poison ivy I see! That is a large vine for sure!

    Those stacks are a combination of hard maple, ash, oak, hickory and some sassafrass. No complaints from me on that variety. I've got some pine rounds back there too waiting to be split.

    I think there are 3-4 cord stacked. I've got 3x that much to still c/s/s.


    Yeah I'm pretty sure that's poison ivy. I cut a large section of the vine, so hopefully it will not keep growing. Before Sandy I didn't get back there much so I didn't even know it was there.
