There are at least seven dead trees on my property that can be harvested for firewood. The problem is that I can't get a truck to them due to landscaping issues, and the property has a HARD slope down to a small creek. There's no way to get a wheelbarrow to the trees, it would definitely be hand-carried or I would have to use a winch to drag it up the steep and muddy incline. It's steeper than stairs in most places and I can't even walk the property without losing my footing and ending up on my butt at least once or twice. There are also some monster trees that fell some time in the past across the creek that could possibly be used for firewood, but they're about 36" diameter and over 16 feet long. Any ideas how I can go about clearing the dead wood? I don't have a chainsaw, but I think it's in the budget if I can get the wood up the slope and stack it to dry. I have never cut down a tree. The guy that cleaned my chimney quoted me $400 to fell a large oak and leave it as-is where it lies. It's about 46" at the base, and about 36" 8' up. He tells me he sees four cords in that tree. Thank you!
