Be safe. Remember that you are dealing with tons of potential energy that is probably not all that happy about being cut down.
It's on the ground
Your tree looks almost as nice standing as it does laying down.
Nice work! Lots if warmth laying there.
Tops cut and brush cleaned up
Now the trunk
Nice drop madtrapper, what type of Oak was it?
Thanks for those pictures...........felt like I was there doing it with ya
Looks like a red from here, I though I felt the ground shake this morning!
good job, it is nice when you do not have anything in the way like that
That is no type of red oak I have ever seen for sure. It looks a lot more like white oak than red, but that green back is strange looking to me. We don't ever see that around here.
Our red oaks here have the same greenish growth on them.
White oak here is the rounds ready for splitting
The little stuff
Counted 84 rings on the tree it won't be sucking any more moisture out of our fields now. It's amazing how far our from oak that the crops don't grow.
you didn't play around with it that's for sure
As fast as you are at felling , liming, bucking & clearing the brush,
got it split & stacked yet ? LOL
Good job. Some serious heat in a couple years
No it's a little wet to get splitter back there hopefully it gets cold enough this week to harden the ground up. Plus now that deer season is over the beagles needed some running
Nice work.....Nice wood
That sure looks good the way you have it cut and all cleaned up. Pictures look great. I even like the looks of your worked up field.
Trapper, that looks like a nice tree to make into firewood. For sure you had no problem telling where it would fall because it was on the edge. It will make some really good firewood too.
As for the ground getting hard, I think that will be into next week rather than this week. It will turn colder starting tomorrow but doesn't sound like it will be cold enough for frost as daytime temperatures still well above freezing. Hope it does freeze up soon though.
Time for splitting
Got it all split
Wow...Waste no time eh?
Nice score on the White Oak!
fr#%in' love white oak.
i spend as much time smelling it as splitting it.
Love it, you did such a nice job so fast. Great score!
Finished stacking it today it will sit here in the open for 2 years then moved inside
