    That is a big sucker. If you have the equipment, go for it!

    gonna haul the splitter there. I will cut it to about 16 inches. I have a few lawn service accounts in the neighborhood. Her insurance paid to have it felled. The tree company said it ould be another 300 to remove stump and I think she just pocketed the money. Im gonna try to hit her for 200. No one else is willing to tackle it for free

    Time to go back for a visit...and bring that saw in your sig pic. ==c
    That's reminiscent of the monster Pin Oak I posted about a couple of years back. 71" where they cut it, about 65" DBH. The trunk is still there, and probably will be for thirty years.

    Splitting in place is a good idea ;)
    Looks like some nice firewood.
    Watch for nails etc ;)

    I hate cutting anything within 100 yards of a house for that very reason. I think i may go to the fire dept and get a rescue saw. Nails dont even slow it down

    Steel leaves a blue/black stain in the wood.
    Not sure if it travels up or down the trunk from it's location.
    Scotty "O" posted about it a while back.

    Yep, look for "black and blue" streaks in the end grain of the log.....that's a tell-tale for iron or steel. Now stainless steel, not sure if that would leave any streaks (I'm thinking NOT). One thing's for sure.....there's gonna be a lot of "uglies" from the top couple rounds on that log!

    It won't hurt to ask for a hundred or so for doing the removal of that stump. There's some hard work involved in that puppy!

    I guarantee you if that were a log that I was working, that I would DEFINATELY be noodling the top couple of rounds, for sure.....
