    I had to clear the trail to get to the other side of the hard maple I started on thursday. I managed only 2 loads due to spending so much time clearing brush to make it safe to cut. Sorry, no action pics, just where I had to clear the trail and the rounds back to the compound.

    That looks like it's still got some meat to it. I've been cutting some dead standers too. Sometimes I need to cull some punk out but I'm still getting a lot of good wood. Once I get caught up, I'll try to catch these trees when they start to die....should have more good wood, less trash.
    I know what you mean about clearing. Seems like half my time getting a tree is finding/clearing a path to it, then making room to work after I drop it.

    For sure, if you have lanes or trails in the woods, you will do a goodly amount of work keeping them cleared. Between new stuff growing and leaning across the trails to downed limbs, it can amount to a lot of work.

    Yes, the 372 went through the downed sassafras like butter.

    I've been saving Sass poles around 4" to stack on...supposed to be rot-resistant.
