    Sometimes work happens while you should be at some other work? lol...
    Is that the oldest hedge tree in America? Is that tree on a church property or park or something?
    Can you get any pics of it before it went down?

    I will ask if they had pictures, it's old mansion that has turned into a charity. That was cut down and a silver maple. Was in power lines. I need a big saw! Want to get as much as I can before it's cleaned up [​IMG][​IMG]

    Also damn heavy to carry into this truck

    The most dense wood of North America. The stuff is like working with cement.

    I have worked up some monster trunks. Some so big that I would measure my 20" stove length, sink the bar and make a slice, then come in from the butt end and cut that off. Do the same on the other side. The the chunk still left in the middle (it will probably only come out at 18" because the saw can't ride flush to the old cut.

    See my awesome graphics for a mental picture:

    Stellar graphics. Yeah that's how this is. I am just going to get what I can break off. This is first year "harvesting" wood and I'm starting to get a good collection going. I wish I had more land to store

    Wow, I can't quite get the scope of those rounds. Can you take a measurement of the stump? Probably no need to hurry as it will surely be there 150 years from now.

    That will be a tree you'll never forget. Maybe the wood will go into your private stash collection?
