    Started on this triple bunch of 60year old pines all twisted together.

    Watch out for stored energy in those branches and trunks.....when they are 'dominoed' like that, there usually is some tricky cutting.....

    You'll be sittin' pretty after you get all that wood processed up!

    Sort of tires me out just thinking about all that cutting. One thing you can always count on is lots of limbing to do on those suckers.

    I'd be dead already if I hadn't considered the consequences of many of those cuts.

    Looks like you're working on a puzzle, take your time. Looks like they were healthy trees before the storm.

    Perfectly healthy. If they were diseased, they probably would not have provided enough wind resistance to be knocked over by Sandy's winds.
