    Love the pics of your dogs . . . I swear it looks like you've trained them to do your wood processing work for you.

    across the road dealing with the locust/maple that came down last summer in a good storm..

    on third bucket full and probably another 8 or 9 to go.. got to have hands back when splitting the locust as it sure is a strong wood and snaps when split :bug: :cheese:

    Loon, looks like it was a good time. I was in the woods all day today hauling out that quaking aspen for the shoulder season, started with a sweatshirt on this morning which lasted about 30 minutes then got down to the t-shirt.

    had to reload today zap :cheese:


    so i ran into another neighbor yesterday and he asked if i could knock a bunch of locust down for him and 'yes' was the quick answer..

    but except for the big limbs i was dealing with yesterday this kind of tree is a first for me. been reading up on it and they say its a good burning tree?
    does anyone on the board know much about locust??

    thanks eh!

    Wow, what I wouldn't give for 50 straight black locusts. That is a gold mine. Cut some black locust around here but rarely that straight and tall with no limbs. Great stuff, stinks when it burns though.

    Loon, I know you can't tell much from pictures, especially color, so I am going to ask. Is the wood pale yellow? Something about those logs doesn't look right for Black locust.
