    It's been 5 years coming but these fellas are just sucking up too much water and laying down too much shade. I'm tired of mowing dirt!!! 4 60 footers, 34 years old. Timber!!!!! Time for some solar panels up top anyhow lol. Enjoy. image.jpg

    What are the squirrels gonna do? :) They love beech.

    Looks like a good outfit, chipping the branches as they go. (Good mulch ;) )

    Wood looks pretty wet.
    Get it split & stacked up & it should be ready in about 2 years.

    2.75 cords

    Alright now how much? Since its all together. I say 2.5. Those logs are huge but no match for the silverado in 4LO

    If its 2 or so, that will put me at 6.5 or 7 cord.

    My guess is just shy of 2 cords. A 24" diameter log that is 8' long is essentially 1/4 cord. Your tree logs look to be a longer than 8' but not 24" so I give you a cord+ there. Limbs take a lot to add up, so there is my guess. But then again photos of wood laid out flat are hard to get into cord perspective so I would be happy to be wrong and see you having 2.5. No matter what it will keep you warm. :)
