    Awesome pics ; as usual.
    Some "primo" wood there.
    Many of us understand breaking the rounds down to manageable pieces, smart move. Your back will thank you.
    Great score, lots of hard work , you earned every BTU :)
    Good job!

    Steve, many of us wish we had such wonderful firewood. Keep on and you'll pass a few of us with the size of your wood piles.

    After sleeping off New Year's Eve until about 1pm, I took my last ride up to the camp to grab the last of my Red Oak score. Probably about 1/3 cord. All these rounds required the full length of the 25" bar. Big, heavy, solid stuff. Not even the usual rot down by the stump.

    I hope this stump doesn't fall down on the road now that the stem is gone!

    I've got lots of splitting to do now. I think that I'll end up with almost three cords from this for some time in 2015.

    Speed is the key ... the moment they said ok on first contact, chain the base to the tractor,slice off the rootball and haul it into the public ROW. By the time the DOT/DPW/HWYDEPT gets there to remove it, you'll have it bucked and loaded.As others have said, NEVER buck more than you can load.

    I did some splitting this afternoon. Nice to be able to fill in the stack as I burn this winter. I will probably be burning this in about three years.
