    Hauled another leaner out,too tight for trailer had to bungee the rounds out on the atv,check out some of the monster cherrys in this place some are 5 feet at base and 80 feet tall,they will never be cut as the owner was insulted once when he had a timber company try and lowball him on their worth.Anything on ground is fair game.

    That is some big cherry!

    As for the trailer, if I can get the atv in I can usually also get the trailer in. Sometimes it is so tight that I might have to turn the trailer around by hand but then rehook, load and off we go!

    Amen Backwoods have done the same thing before but it was bright and sunny today so I had time to kill and that's what I did about 6 to 10 rounds per trip made short work of that tree.

    So they let them fall over that's smart. There is more than one timber company around. Most landowners think their timber is worth more than it is anyway!!

    OLA, that grove of cherries could get a man through winter if it wasn't a cold one. Show us the stack when you get it put up.l

    Love the way that Cherry burns! :cool: I'll sometimes toss in a few splits on the front/top of some longer-burning fuel. The Cherry will keep floating flames in the stove for a couple of hours...great when you need some serious output to recover the room temp.
    And yeah, that is some huge Cherry right there! _g
