Finally cooled off enough to get out the saws and finish cleaning up the mess from the wind storm two months ago. Its not often I get a tree big enough to break out the 2175 w/ 32" bar. But its fun when I do. Had to put more air in the front tires to pick up this popple. But it sure makes it easier to block it up when its up off the ground no pinching the bar and the chain lasts longer. This is a very hazardous tree to try to cut down. 15 years ago I would have gave it a whack. But the adverse correlation of forces involved here I could have very easily became a bloody smear on the ground. So I hooked it to the tractor and yanked on it for 15 minutes or so until I got the top broke off and on the ground. Tree was still 2' dia where it broke. A 24" dia white pine I cut down to make 18' 1 1/4"x8" boards for side racks for my trailer. I cut the stump high enough to make a low chair out of. So when I am out for a walk in the woods I can stop sit and listen to the wind in the trees. I found when cutting it you need to make the back rest curve a little for comfort and slab off as much bark as you can so it doesn't rot. I'll stain it and coat it with polyurethane next year.
